CycleNation Albany commemorated their inaugural event by celebrating the life of Paula Symanski, stroke survivor and CycleNation Albany committee member, who passed away suddenly a few days prior to the event. Paula is a reminder for why we are so passionate about CycleNation and our mission. She embodied the spirit of CycleNation and we will continue to be a relentless force in her honor!

Let’s ride stroke and heart disease into the dust. On May 18, 2019, our band of cyclists and well-wishers met in Southampton, NY to gang up on these two leading causes of death. Each rider chose from a 27-mile, 59-mile, or 100-mile bike ride through the heart of the Hamptons. This unique and inspiring event was led by co-chairs Nick Racanelli and Louis C. Ciliberti. Riders raised more than $173,000 and were part of an exclusive team of cycling enthusiasts from the corporate, medical, and philanthropic world who are committed to our mission: To be a relentless force for a world of longer, healthier lives – one pedal stroke at a time!

In honor of World Stroke Day on October 29th, the ASA launched a new campaign “I Will Again” to promote that with good rehab and support, survivors can overcome stroke’s impact. A star already on the rise, singer-songwriter Angie Aparo earned widespread acclaim when Faith Hill and Tim McGraw each covered his songs. But in April 2016, he suffered a debilitating stroke. Doctors managed to stabilize his symptoms, but stroke caused him to forget how to speak, much less write music.

Thanks to a strict recovery regimen, Aparo’s injury slowly began to heal. And nearly a year and a half later, Aparo played for a sold-out crowd and released the Album, Life Is a Flower. Life Is a Gun.
