May is National Stroke Awareness Month, and South Texas Health System will be hosting its second annual Steps for Stroke 50,000-step challenge, a community competition aimed at raising awareness of the warning signs of stroke and educating the community on ways to reduce your risk of having one.
During this virtual week-long challenge, participants will commit to walk, run or even dance their way to a minimum of 10,000 steps per day and 50,000 steps total within the specified time frame (May 21-27). You’ll be able to log your steps on our official challenge website. Prizes will be awarded for the top three leaders in various categories, including staff, as well as a special prize for the facility with the most steps, so make sure to mark where you work!
And you’re invited to kick off the challenge on Saturday, May 21 at the official Steps for Stroke Pep Rally. Along with picking up your packet, you’ll get the chance to start upping your step count with fun aerobic activities throughout the day!
