About The Event
Join Huntsville Memorial Hospital and our Stroke Neurologist, Dr. Bruce, as we host “Neon For Neurons”, a community color fun run to raise awareness of Stroke during the month of May. That’s right, we said COLOR run. Neon for Neurons will be a night run where participants sport glow-in-the-dark gear like bracelets, necklaces, body paint, glow sticks and more- not to mention being “showered” with color along the raceway at our Color Pit Stops. Mark your calendars now for May 5, 2017.
Participants can choose to walk 1 mile in our “Slow Pokes for Stroke” event or take part in the ‘Color Me FAST” 5k. F.A.S.T. stands for FACE: "smile," ARM: "raise both arms," SPEECH: "Repeat this phrase," TIME: "Call 9-1-1." Our goal is to raise awareness, support and honor survivors, and decrease the incidence of stroke in Walker County with this fun event.
