May is Stroke Awareness Month. I confess I didn’t know that until my brother-in-law Larry Lorenz and mother-in-law Stephanie Lorenz were both unexpectedly felled by strokes. Then I learned that one American dies from a stroke every four minutes – and that many of these deaths are preventable.
Our family will never know if prevention efforts could have saved our loved ones. But we do know a fitting way to honor their memory – by helping others who may unknowingly be at risk for stroke.
We developed this Stroke Reduction Golf Classic to benefit the Spectrum Health Stroke Team. Your participation will enable them to educate more local residents about the risk factors, signs and symptoms of stroke.
The dual objective of the Stroke Reduction Golf Classic is “Reducing Strokes in Life and Golf through Knowledge and Action.” Participants will learn techniques to improve their golf game and to reduce the chances of experiencing a stroke, all while enjoying a fun-filled day on and off the course.
We invite you to join us for a day of golf that can make a difference in the lives of countless West Michiganders. And we hope that you can count the strokes you saved by taking advantage of the learning opportunities with the golf clinics offered at the event. We would love to see you in May!
