About 40 people participate in Bend’s first Stroke Awareness Oregon’s Walk-n-Wheel-athon

About 40 people participated, to raise funds and awareness for the cause.

I spoke with SAO Board of Directors member Jim Patterson, who is a stroke survivor.

“I suffered a stroke in July of 2020,” Patterson said. “As a result of significant and very challenging rehabilitation, I’m here today to participate in this walk, to help raise money for Stroke Awareness Oregon.”
