United Stroke Alliance
The United Stroke Alliance team is made up of passionate individuals who tirelessly strive to make a difference every day in the lives of stroke survivors and their families. It all began humbly 13 years ago, in Peoria, IL with a small group of volunteers focused on the basic goal of providing stroke survivors and caregivers a “refreshing” weekend break from the grind of recovering from and living with stroke. The success of this initial altruistic venture of Retreat & Refresh Camps has grown to 28 camps in 19 states and still growing stronger!
A global, non-profit organization dedicated to educating people on the Prevention, Awareness and Recovery of stroke for survivors, caregivers and their families.
Then, out of the need to build public awareness, the largest grass roots campaign in the nation was born – Strike Out Stroke! This organization alone has introduced over 40 million impressions to the Act FAST message over the last 4 years. We have developed other successful programs such as Youth education, Stroke Camp Cruise, Survivor Chimes Choirs, Support groups and more.
