Walk Your Way to World Stroke Day!


People walking with Urban Poles
Join us as we celebrate World Stroke Day through active living!


 


World Stroke Day on Monday, October 29th is fast approaching and MODC is once again partnering with Urban Poling to raise funds and awareness!

In support of March of Dimes Canada and World Stroke Day, Urban Poling will donate 1% of their annual sales from ACTIVATOR poles purchased at participating Guardian and IDA stores or through their online store at urbanpoling.com.

We all know that physical activities like walking are a crucial part of keeping healthy and recovering after a stroke. Some of us need extra support though, which is where the ACTIVATOR poles come in. Their poles help you feel secure and confident while you get the activity you need to be as healthy and strong as possible.  
Stroke survivor Lynn Bellanger used the ACTIVATOR poles during her recovery. "They are by far the most effective tool I’ve ever used," says Bellanger. "Overall, they’ve been great for my rehab and my recovery."

Over 200 independent studies have found that walking poles help you strengthen your core, improve your posture and balance, and provide a more intensive work out than traditional walking.
