CV-RAPS : Central Valley Recovery Awareness Preventing Strokes

This monthly program was developed to bring people throughout the Central Valley community together to hear experts that have been trained in some aspect of healing or recovery from a brain attack, a stroke. Since damage to the brain also causes cognitive and neurological problems similar to those who have incurred a brain injury, Healings in Motion also includes programs that embrace those who are recovering from Traumatic Brain Injury (“TBI”). Caregivers play a substantial role in caring for survivors; they are always a vital part of our programs. Lunch is provided at CV-RAPS programs. For more information, visit our “CV-RAPS” page of this site.


This annual event includes an evening of entertainment, food, and an awards ceremony honoring Survivors of Stroke and Traumatic Brain Injury. Awards categories include the Courage Award, Creative Expressions Award, Jr. Caregiver Award, Caregiver Award, and the Coach for Life’s Champion Award.
