A rocking event this Friday will raise funds for the annual stroke camp, which is a weekend retreat for local stroke survivors.

Beth Malina, Stroke Coordinator at St. Elizabeth Regional Medical Center says, "Stroke camp is amazing.  It is one of the greatest weekends ever and it is stroke survivors and their caregivers are able to do things that any of us would do if we went camping or had a weekend away."

Stroke survivor, Robert Becker, has gone the last three years.

Becker says, "Every year it's amazing what happens, we have a gentleman that comes to the stroke camp with the stroke group.  For 5 years he couldn't talk and now he's talking."

Stroke survivors pay very little to go to the three day camp. 

Fundraiser's throughout the year cover the cost. 

There's a fundraiser this Friday, March 28th at the Auld Pavilion in Antelope Park.

There will be live music from the band, The Haze.

The fun goes from 7–10 p.m.
