People in Marietta Saturday morning were running and walking to help support survivors of stroke.
The Memorial Health System's Rehabilitation Center helped put on the first ever Think F.A.S.T. 5-K Run and Walk Fundraiser.
Runners and walkers of all ages made their way from around town.
F.A.S.T., which stands for Fighting Against Stroke Together, is a program that keeps stroke survivors exercising regularly and maintain strength, mobility.
It transitions them back to being a part of the community.
"It means there's life after stroke, it means that the improvement and the strengthening and the getting the better never ends. And it means that there's a group of people in this community that absolutely love our stroke patients," says Marietta Memorial Hospital Director of Therapy Services, Ann Marie Lowers.
The event will help benefit the Bridges Forward Program.
It's a collaboration between the Memorial Health System and the Marietta Family YMCA.
