Crouse Hospital Provides Support for Winston Gaskin Walk for Wellness and Stroke Prevention

Get your feet thumping and your heart pumping to improve your health and raise awareness about preventing stroke during the 2015 Winston Gaskin Walk for Wellness and Stroke Prevention on Saturday, Sept. 26, at Upper Onondaga Park in Syracuse. The walk is scheduled for 9-11 a.m., with registration from 8:30-9 a.m., at the park, bounded by Roberts Ave., Crossett St. and Onondaga Ave.

There is a $10 event registration fee for adults that includes a walk t-shirt. All funds raised at the event benefit health and wellness programs provided by 100 Black Men of Syracuse, Inc. For more information, call the group’s office at 315/443-8749 or website, 100blackmensyr.org. wellness stroke  prevention

The walk is being held in honor of Winston Gaskin, Syracuse’s first African-American pharmacist, and his many contributions to our community. The burden of stroke is greater among Blacks than in any other group. In fact, not only do African-Americans have almost twice the risk of first-ever stroke compared with Caucasians, but those 35 to 54 years of age have four times the relative risk for stroke.

For more information, email Charles Anderson, 100 Black Men of Syracuse Health & Wellness Chair, at charlesanderson5@mac.com or call him at (315) 200-7847.
