Our support group for parents of children that have suffered a stroke meets monthly on scheduled Tuesday’s from 6 – 7:30 pm in the University Physicians Inc. building on the Anschutz Medical Campus or at the Brain Injury Alliance of Colorado (alternating months). The group also meets for other family activities.
These meetings are open to families of children of all ages and all types of stroke. Your child does not need to be seen at our stroke clinic to join the meetings. Typically, we hold an informal presentation and allow the parents to socialize. Dinner and parking are provided at each meeting. Childcare is available only at meetings held at the UPI building on the Anschutz Medical Campus. Please make plans accordingly when we meet at the BIAColorado location.
In August we are meeting at the Summer Picnic (info below). Please check back here, on Facebook or Twitter for regular updates on the date and location of our next meetings.
If you have questions, or to find out more about upcoming meetings, please contact:
Amanda Kenny at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 303-724-2677.
Our Summer Picnic this year will be held on Sunday, August 30th, from 1-5 pm. We have reserved the shelter at Cherry Knolls Park in Littleton/Centennial (same place as last year). Please plan on bringing a side dish or dessert to share.
RSVP to Amanda by Wednesday, Aug 26th by phone or email: 303-724-2677 email@example.com.
Cherry Knolls is located just south of Arapahoe Road and just west of University. Parking is available on Elizabeth St. off Arapahoe, or along Easter Avenue (Easter is closer to the shelter).
You can access google maps and get directions here.
Please visit our Resource page for additional information, links, and opportunities for those families who have experienced pediatric stroke.

Strike Out Stroke
Many families in our group participate in the Strike Out Stroke event sponsored by the Colorado Rockies to bring awareness to the public about stroke for both young and old. Some of our families are featured in these videos about the event the past two years. Check back here and we'll post a link for the 2014 video when it comes available!
