Join us this November on a month long campaign to prevent, treat and beat stroke. We are calling on all Australians to get moving and Stride4stroke.
Stride4stroke is the Stroke Foundation’s annual campaign to raise much needed funds and awareness, anyone can take part no matter what your fitness level is. You can tackle the stairs in rehab, roll your wheel chair around the block, gather your friends or colleagues for a walk in the park or run a marathon. The main thing is to partner with us to fight stroke by getting moving and raising funds.
Taking part in Stride4stroke is simple, pledge your kilometre target for November and get moving.
Almost half of Australian adults and 80 percent of children aren’t doing enough physical activity, putting us at unnecessary risk of stroke. Not moving puts your health at risk and combined with smoking, poor diet and high blood pressure puts you at serious risk of stroke.
Stroke is largely preventable, it is treatable and it is beatable. Taking part in Stride4stroke is a great way to keep active while raising money for an important cause.
There are more than 475,000 stroke survivors living in our community and every dollar raised will support stroke survivors and their families throughout the journey to recovery.
StrokeLine is our national inbound service where health professionals provide advice on stroke prevention, treatment and recovery. Our team can help you to find the support and services you need, whether you are a stroke survivor, carer or family member.
StrokeLine is the only dedicated help line for people affected by stroke in Australia.
Over the next year it will cost $318,412 to run StrokeLine and without your help taking part in campaigns like Stride4stroke we can’t keep our vital support services going.
Join us in 2017, with your help, the Stroke Foundation will help survivors to live the best possible life after stroke.
