Saving Strokes

Saving Strokes, a program of the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association, is a free event designed to encourage stroke survivors and caregivers to get out and be active. 

Survivors meet others who are experiencing the same things they are or have gone through in their rehabilitation. No previous golf experience is needed. Stroke survivors in all stages of recovery are welcome to hit the greens to improve their strength, flexibility and balance. In addition to golf, stroke survivors and their caregivers will enjoy a heart healthy lunch and an inspirational talk.
 
Stroke is the Nation’s No. 4 killer and the leading cause of severe, long-term disability. A 1999 study from the University of Chicago showed that techniques important in golf—focus, dexterity and balance—can also improve strength and flexibility for stroke survivors.

Saving Strokes is locally sponsored by Dignity Health. Dignity Health has four area facilities—St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center, Barrow Neurological Institute, Chandler Regional Medical Center and Mercy Gilbert Medical Center.
