Raising Awareness of
Stroke in Young People
Our main focus is raising awareness of stroke in young people. In May, we dye the most famous fountain in Kansas City bright orange! Later in the year, we host a massive auto show to raise awareness that stroke can happen to anyone, even young people.
We have young stroke survivors who have shared their stories from coast to coast on our story page. We encourage survivors to meet together and discuss life with people who actually know what they’re going through. We consider you a young stroke survivor if you have had a stroke under 45.
Every year we ask other organizations to participate in our events. We provide them with a platform to raise money for their cause and help us raise awareness of stroke in young people.
Advance His Kingdom
We believe in The Gospel of Jesus Christ. We believe that the Gospel provides you eternal life and freedom to overcome struggles of this world through grace alone, through faith alone, and in Christ alone. The Gospel is all we have and we are always open to talk about it.
