TAAFWalk is an honored San Francisco tradition celebrating a National Day of Aneurysm and AVM Awareness sponsored by The Aneurysm and AVM Foundation (TAAF), and this is our 13th Annual Aneurysm and AVM Awareness Walk. As a community-oriented nonprofit organization, we rely on the support of volunteers, businesses, and the medical community to ensure the success of our event and programs. By supporting TAAFWalk, our sponsors make a significant impact on the lives of those affected by aneurysm and AVM, and we are truly grateful for their part in our journey.
We're pleased to introduce you to each of those friends here:
TAAFWalk18 EVENT Level Sponsor
Our sincere thanks and gratitude to both Stanford Medicine's Department of Neurosurgery and Stanford Health Care, our TAAFWalk '18 Event Level Sponsor. Stanford Health Care is no ordinary health system. As part of Stanford Medicine and the larger Stanford University family, they provide care as an “academic medical center.” With regard to service of the greater aneurysm and AVM community, together they are an international referral center for complex neurovascular disorders of the brain and spinal cord.
Be sure to meet representatives from their team, such as neurosurgeon Dr. Gary Steinberg, and click their links above for more on the great works they do!
Thanks again to EVENT Level Sponsor Stanford Health Care and Stanford Medicine's Department of Neurosurgery!
Known for their amazing Mobile Stroke Treatment Program, Cleveland Clinic has one of the highest stroke-related patient volumes in North America, and we are incredibly thankful for their support as Platinum Sponsors forTAAFWalk '18.

Our heartfelt thanks to Gold Sponsor, UCSF Health.
