Welcome to Parker's Pack

Parker's Pack

Thank you for visiting Parker's Pack page. Through its Next Step program the American Stroke Foundation helps adult stroke survivors to reclaim hope and rebuild their lives. If you know someone who has had a stroke you know how hard that task is. Next Step programs are funded by people like you so this Stroke Walk is very important to our participants and the communities we serve. For more information about the program visit americanstroke.org.

This year I'm walking for two of the stroke survivors who were very dear to me, Walter and Ralph. Walter (the smaller pic) was a very sweet man who loved to cook and who was always sharing recipes. You might not have know if you met him that he had had a stroke because his verbal skills were so good but if you asked him to play a game that required abstract skills his disability would become apparent.

Like many people I met Ralph (the big pic, he was a big man with a big personality) the first day I walked into the Foundation 13 years ago. At that time he was concentrating on making his arm work better. His arm was functional after awhile but not what it was. He had aphasia but you could understand him pretty well and I had him accompany me many times when I went to talk about the Foundation. He served on our board of directors, loved the OT students, and got us more donations than you can imagine. I miss him very much.

Parker's Pack would love to have you walk with us to honor Ralph and Walter and all the other survivors on September 9th at Theis Park (click the button above for walk information). If you're not able to join us for the actual walk, you can walk virtually from wherever you are just click on register and pick virtual walker-- you don't even need to get out of bed!

We appreciate all the support we can get! Together we can make a difference! - Kathy
