And, I can’t think of a better way to celebrate that announcement than by sharing with you a link to their e-newsletter website, Stroke Smart, where a story about one of our customers, a stroke survivor by the name of Bill Hrncir, has recently been posted: Natl Stroke Assn article
As you will read, Bill and his wife, Dee Dee, started the Laredo Stroke Survivor group sometime after Bill suffered a stroke in 2006 at the age of 47. We got to know them when Bill bought a recumbent and, since then, several other group members have discovered the joys of ‘bent riding as well.
We are thrilled to be able to contribute something to the efforts of the N.S.A. to provide stroke education and to support Stroke Survivor Groups which are so important to the recovery and support of stroke survivors, their caregivers, and their families and friends. For more about this organization, visit their website: The National Stroke Assn
We hope that, through this connection, the word will spread about how useful the adaptability of recumbents can be to stroke survivors, as well as those who suffer from a variety of other conditions and injuries which would otherwise keep them from being able to cycle.
Bill and friends from the Laredo group will be joining us at this year’s Rally. Please seek them out and introduce yourselves. And — I know I can count on our community of riders to be generous in your purchase of raffle tickets from which the proceeds will go to the National Stroke Association.
Thanks in advance for your generosity. Tickets will be one for $2 and three for $5. Cash and checks will be most handy for ticket purchase, though you will be able to purchase them with your credit card as well.
