During the May 20th Saints game, we are looking for nine sponsors to make a donation for every "walk" awarded during one of the nine innings.

Your business, civic group or walk team can be the Inning Walk Donor and recognized by the Saints PA Announcer that night.

And at the 2006 Strides for Stroke Walk at the State Capitol on June 3rd. 

We love the double entendre! 

We hope you'll walk with us this year!

Minnesota Stroke Association strives to restore hope in lives impacted by stroke. Every walk and walker makes a difference!

Inning walk sponsorships begin at $250.00.
