Four Brownsville hospitals will join forces Saturday to support the Strides 4 Stroke FAST 5K on Saturday at Sunrise Mall.

South Texas Rehabilitation Hospital, Valley Regional Medical Center, Valley Baptist Medical Center and Solara Specialty Hospital will host this event for the second year in a row.

Strides 4 Stroke FAST 5K  is designed to promote stroke prevention and identification of the signs and symptoms of a stroke. It is named FAST 5K in order to draw attention to the acronym F.A.S.T., used to help detect and enhance responsiveness to stroke victim needs. F stands for Face Drooping, A for Arm Weakness, S for Speech Difficulty and T for Time to call 9-1-1.

The event begins at 8 a.m. in the parking lot of Sunrise. A miracle lap will be held at 8:30 a.m., and stroke survivors are invited to participate.
