As a result Rotary will be organising Blood Pressure Awareness days on 2 and 3 April 2004. Rotary International in Great Britain and Ireland’s Stroke Awareness Campaign has won the Institute of Public Relations’ IPR PRide Award 2003/4 for Best Charity or Non-Profit Campaign.The twelve month campaign in support of The Stroke Association ran from July 2002 to June 2003. It publicised the fact that high blood pressure is the largest single preventable cause of stroke.The focus of the campaign was a Blood Pressure Awareness Day in April 2003. More than 1000 Rotary Clubs organised 130,000 blood pressures checks on one day, gaining an entry in the Guinness Book of Records. The media coverage for the project reached a potential audience in excess of 60 million and included 1,000 media stories. The campaign raised £65,000 in England and Wales and additional funds were raised in Scotland and Ireland. In addition 500,000 promotional leaflets were distributed to the public by Rotary Clubs.

The 2020 New York Yankees season will be the 118th season in New York City for the Yankees, and the 120th season overall for the franchise. The Yankees will play in Yankee Stadium in the city’s northern borough of The Bronx, and will be led by Aaron Boone on his third season as team manager. And, you can catch all the games up to the World Series on FOX Sports 640 AM. The Yankees are right at home in South Florida since many of the team’s players, including Giancarlo Stanton, are from the Miami Marlins.Last year, the Yankees fell to the Astros in the ALCS once again to end their 2019 season. And it’s even more disappointing than 2017 because this was supposed to be the year the Bronx Bombers took that leap forward into a new age of championships. Instead, GM Brian Cashman found himself heading into an offseason needing to upgrade his roster once again to ensure a World Series would be in his team’s future in 2020. He delivered. Cashman & Co. landed the league’s top free agent former Astro Gerrit Cole with a massive nine-year, $324 million deal to give the Yankees an ace, and potentially the missing piece they needed to capture their 28th world title.
