I'm taking part in TWM STRIDE4STROKE to prevent, treat & beat stroke!
Stroke is one of Australia’s biggest killers and a leading cause of disability.
In Australia currently, 12% of people say they won’t have exercised this week. One million strokes a year globally are linked to physical inactivity. One of the things we can do to reduce our risk of stroke, or secondary stroke, is to keep active.
The TWM STRIDE4STROKE event began last year when Dan’s sister, Bec, had a stroke and he wanted to do something to raise stroke awareness and make a difference. Bec was 28 when she had her stroke and has since faced many battles - both mental and physical that many people wouldn’t understand.
There are the major physical limitations that occur after a stroke but there are also many invisible side affects that we are not aware of.
We want more people to become educated in strokes, show greater kindness and empathy towards those who may seem a bit different - as quite often we have no idea what they have been through plus the common mental health battles that follow.
ABOUT THE EVENT
So this year the incredible Training With Mates Community will be reuniting on Saturday 6 November for the TWM STRIDE4STROKE FUN RUN, WALK or RIDE to raise awareness and vital funds for young stroke survivors and turning their 'invisible' daily issues visible.
You can run, walk, push or cycle any of the 7, 14, 21 and 28km distances in bright colours along the Kingston and Bayside coastline.
Please secure your ticket via this link: www.trybooking.com/BTJUE
If you wish to participate in the event please make a minimum $30 donation for the event which will give you access to join, receive a show bag plus an incredible morning!
You can donate to any team member under the TWM STRIDE4STROKE 2021 page. All donations will roll into the team’s tally.
If you can’t attend but would like to get involved we would love your support in sharing the event, helping raise awareness and donating. Anything you can chip in is greatly appreciated.
