Welcome to Dancing for Stroke 2017!

Passionate volunteers are joining with Dignity Health in their healing mission to support neurology care. Dignity Health supports neuro-wellness and neurology care with a team approach and humankindness.

Your investment in neuro-wellness will support education, advocacy and emergency care.  You will also be supporting many quality rehabilitative programs for stroke survivors such as:

  • support groups
  • recreation like dance or golf classes
  • hippotherapy (horse) outings
  • Day on the Lake (adapted water sports)
  • refresh and restreat stroke (or brain tumor) camps
  • chimes choir or singing
  • social events

All of these heal the patient in mind-body-and spirit.  Special attention is given to the caregiver who may also attend support groups, socials and camp. 

Charles Schwab has joined the team and held their “Dancing for a Cause” event June 24th at the Mesa Arts Center with over 380 guests in attendance! They were the first dancers to start practicing and fundraising this year and they busted their $35,000 goal to support stroke patients and their families! Istn't that amazing!  We appreciate the Schwab team who will be the "wine sponsors" for our October event. We also appreciate the many other corporate supporters for this cause.  

Jen Winkelman is one of the Charles Schwab dancers and fundraisers who shared her story: 

"I am so excited to be Dancing for a Cause and raising money for Dignity Health Foundation Stroke Programs!  Not only is it fun, great exercise, and a way to bond with co-workers, but it’s personal for me as well," Jen says. "Last year I lost my 57 year old cousin to stroke, and a dear friend of mine lost her significant other to stroke a few years ago. But I also know several survivors, including my mom, who need additional support and activity to continue their recovery."

Everyone involved has a personal story. For Darleen Santore, it's very personal. She is a stroke survivor and our host again this year. Listen to her invite:
