Welcome to the 2017 Dancing for Stroke!

Please join us on Saturday, October 7, 2017, 5:30 - 11:00 PM,
at the Arizona Grand Resort in Phoenix

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 nuero-wellness will support education, advocacy and emergency care.  You will also be supporting many quality rehabilitative programs for stroke survivors such as dance classes, hippotherapy, stroke camp, support groups, chimes choir, and social events to 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 is holding their “Dancing for a Cause” event June 24, 2017 at the Mesa Arts Center. They are the first dancers to start practicing and fundraising this year and we are certainly hoping they will go over the top with their $35,000 goal to support stroke patients and their families. We appreciate the Schwab team and the many other corporate supporters for this cause.  Jen Winkelman is one of the Charles Schwab danders.

"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:
