2022 Past Events
Annual Holiday Party 2022
Oh, what a great time we had! After a two year hiatus, we had over 140 survivors, family members, SCC staff and other folks from our community gather to eat, dance and enjoy one another’s company! A special thank you to the members of the Consumer Advisory Council who hosted the event, King Street Bluegrass who provided wonderful entertainment, and our resident photographer, Jenifer Morris, who captured such JOY.
2022 Stroke Comeback Trail
A big thanks to our entire Stroke Comeback Center community for making this year’s Stroke Comeback Trail a huge success! We had over 200 participants, ranging in ages from 3 to 90 years old, from 17 states as well as Australia and the United Kingdom!
Once again our community came together to support survivors and their families along their road to recovery. Together we proved that there are no stop signs on that journey!
Stroke Comeback Center would like to extend a special thank you to our Platinum Sponsor, Adventist HealthCare who continues to support our work and stroke survivors in the greater Washington, DC area.
Congratulations to our prize winners – Lawrence Dilworth of Team LAD for the largest team, Matthew Sullivan and his team Fight Back Against Stroke for the most fundraising dollars, and Sandra Ingram and her team A Family Affair for her social media posts.

2022 Kalikie Classic
Wow! What a fantastic day we had hosting the 14th Annual Kalikie Classic on September 14th at Raspberry Falls in Leesburg. We had glorious weather and so many wonderful people coming together to support the center’s mission of providing long term services and support to stroke survivors, regardless of ability to pay. We are so grateful to everyone for making this such a successful day for the center!
Special thanks go to this year’s Kalikie Partner, Double Wood Farm. Other major sponsors include Joanne Addas and Chris & Christie “Kalikie” Arnold.
This year’s Kalikie Cup trophy was won by Raj Bartakke, Jay Majmudar, Victor Sánchez and Dennis Woods. Congratulations to this awesome foursome for winning the title of CHAMPIONS for an entire year!
Christie and everyone at Stroke Comeback are already looking forward to hosting the 15th Annual Kalikie Classic next year. Mark it on your calendar – September 20, 2023 at Raspberry Falls. See you there!
2022 Thriving with Aphasia celebration
We were so pleased to welcome well over 150 Stroke Comeback Center members, family, friends and supporters on June 30th at the State Theatre for our first ever Thriving with Aphasia celebration. We gathered together to enjoy tasty treats, great live music from the Surf Jaguars and a moving program presented from Stroke Comeback Center members Mike Settles, Kim Dyer and Michael Hayden, who shared how they not only live, but thrive, with aphasia. Scroll through these photos to share in the fun. We are so grateful to Jenifer Morris Photography for providing her services for this great evening!
