Hello!

I'm participating in Stride 4 Stroke this November to raise money for the Stroke Foundation as well as reflect on the last 12 months as I approach the anniversary of my stroke on November 30th. 

I was 31 when I had a stroke, with no risk factors. I took over 20 hours to seek medical attention when emergency surgery was done to remove a blood clot from my brain. My stroke took away the right-hand side of my vision but I’m so grateful I was quickly able to return to my biggest loves - running and hiking. 

I’m going to be walking a lot, running a bit, to cover 300km in 30 days and at the end there will be cake to celebrate 1 year still here :)

Thank you friends and whanau for the ongoing love and support always and thank you to the Stroke Foundation for your continued efforts improve supports, resources and outcomes for young people impacted by Stroke. 

 

 

My Updates

12 November

Absolutely blown away by the generosity and support from everyone, I was not expecting this incredible response! ! I feel like I'm marching towards my 1 year stroke anniversary with more support and love than ever and it's coming from all over Australia and New Zealand. Thank you thank you thank you for filling me with warm fuzzy feelings to offset the anxiety surrounding the anniversary and for supporting the amazing work that the Stroke Foundation do to help other survivors of stroke and their families. 

So far I've logged 110km of walking, hiking and running - a huge chunk of that was on the beautiful south coast of NSW with my girlfriend Alia. Both Alia and my very good friend Zoe are clocking up 300km this month too and I bet they're really going to love me when they get in their kms this weekend in the pouring rain hehe

Thank you again everyone xx

So far I have helped Stroke Foundation deliver…

Advice and support from a health professional on StrokeLine

Stroke recovery packs to 3 survivors of stroke.

Training to a StrokeSafe volunteer to deliver community talks.

Funding to stroke researchers to find the next game-changer in stroke.

Thank you to my Sponsors
