As we are unable to meet in person this year with our individual After Stroke Chapters, MODC has decided to host a virtual national Walk n Roll. There will be a Canada wide Zoom celebration on Saturday June 20th (see below). You will not need to make a donation to join the celebration online. However you will need to go to marchofdimes.ca/walknroll

and register in order to receive the invitation to join the Zoom meeting. If you make a donation online you will automatically receive an invitation to join the Zoom meeting.

This online celebration will allow us to connect, while raising awareness and funds for the After Stroke and the Aphasia & Communication Disabilities program (ACDP). The theme will be “20 for 20" for the Walk N Roll section. There will be lots of fun and interactive activities planned for the entire month of June. There will also be prizes for raising money and awareness of stroke and aphasia! You can participate in 20 for 20 by setting a goal for yourself to reach in the month of June. Here are some ideas: ● walking for 20 mins or 20 steps a day ● stretching for 20 mins ● Reading 20 pages of a book ● Anything that has to do with the number 20!

Then come join us from the comfort of your own home to celebrate the goals we have achieved. When: Saturday June 20, 2020 Time: 12:30 PM EST Where: Online in your home What: A day-long online virtual event The event will include a: ● concert ● Exercise classes ● dance party ● and more to raise awareness.


Walk N Roll is the perfect opportunity for everyone to participate in a meaningful way while fostering a spirit of community. Let’s raise awareness of stroke and aphasia together. We will have a great time!! Who: People of all ages and abilities. Invite your friends and families!
