How it Works

How Stride4Stroke Works

No matter why you're moving, make moves that matter!

Every November, people all over Australia get active and raise funds to support stroke prevention, life saving initiatives, and stroke recovery efforts. 

The time you spend being active is measured in moving minutes - a unique way to capture the time you spend being active. We recognise that everyone has different lifestyles, passions and abilities, which is why we embrace a flexible approach to getting active.  Whether you prefer swimming, cycling, walking, running, online classes or engaging in stroke recovery activities - every minute counts.  There are no limits to what you can do!

Getting involved in Stride4Stroke is easy! Simply sign up and once registered, you'll gain access to tools, resources, and a supportive community that will help you kickstart your stride. Set your personal goals, create a fundraising page, and embark on an unforgettable journey towards a world free from disability and suffering caused by stroke.

Every dollar you raise brings us one step closer to preventing more strokes, saving lives and enhancing recovery for more Australians. 

By reaching out to your network, sharing your story, and encouraging donations, you can make a real impact.  Together, let's support stroke prevention initiatives, life-saving research and treatments and programs that help individuals on their path to recovery.

It’s more fun in a team so get your mates together and sign up!

Stride4Stroke is not just an individual journey; it's an opportunity to come together with family, friends, or colleagues to make a collective impact. By participating as a team, you'll amplify your efforts and create lasting memories. Share the joy of being active, motivate each other, and strengthen your connections while striding towards a world free from disability and suffering caused by stroke.

Additionally, you can stride on your own and become part of a vibrant community united by a common goal.  Connect with fellow striders, share your progress and find inspiration in the stories of stroke survivors and their incredible journeys.

Team of Friends
A team of 10 friends make a pledge to collectively walk for 10,000 minutes in November (1000 minutes each). They all agree to self-sponsor themselves $50 each to get their fundraising started and to raise $3000 as a team.

Family Team
A family has witnessed the impact of stroke and has decided to raise funds for Stroke Foundation to help prevent stroke, save lives and enhance recovery for other Australians. They set a fundraising goal of $1000.

Workplace Team
A company who has team members all across Australia, sign up as a team and put the challenge out to all staff to achieve 600 moving minutes in November and raise $200 each. Each donation received will be dollar matched by the company!

Going it Alone
A determined individual is making positive changes in life leading up to summer and Christmas. Inspired by the desire to get more active and support a worthy cause, they discovered Stride4Stroke—an opportunity to combine personal goals with fundraising efforts.
