Augusta University Health, in partnership with The American Heart Association – CSRA and the Augusta GreenJackets, will host “Strike Out Stroke” Night on Wednesday, June 8 at 7:05 at Lake Olmstead Stadium.
Over the course of the GreenJackets game against the Asheville Tourists, Augusta University will take over the concourse with a series of educational stations and interactive stroke-related games. Participants of “Strike Out Stroke” Night will have a chance to see the debilitating symptoms of stroke firsthand while learning how to identify symptoms before they strike.
Those that complete all 10 stations will be able to register for a chance to win either a bicycle (for child participants) or a FitBit (for adult participants).
Mary Morrison, WJBF news personality and stroke survivor, will throw out the honorary first pitch.
For every ticket sold in advance of the game, $4 will be donated to the American Heart Association. To purchase your advance tickets, call 706-922-9467 or visit greenjacketsbaseball.com/tickets and enter code word “HEART.”
