My Activity Tracking
My target 85 kms
This November, I’m taking part in Stroke Foundation’s Stride4Stroke to help prevent, treat and beat stroke!
In Australia, one stroke occurs every 9 minutes.
It is one of Australia's biggest killers, killing more women than breast cancer and more men than prostate cancer.
Stroke attacks the brain, the human control centre, changing lives in an instant. The impact of stroke can be devastating for the individual and the family. However, the impact of stroke can be prevented, with research indicating that around 80 percent of strokes are preventable.
My Dad, Stephen McParlane, had a stroke late June that has left him with permanent paralysis and damage to his brain that he will not recover from. He was born in 1935, the same year the Canterbury Bankstown Bulldogs played their first season. Dad loves Rugby League and the Bulldogs and football has been a big part of my Dad and brothers' lives. Please join or Donate to Team 1935.
I have picked my Stride4Stroke activity goal and will be walking/running at least 85kms in November as Dad will be 85 in October.
Please support my Stride4Stroke challenge with a donation today.
Your donation will help the Stroke Foundation support those affected right now and fund research to help prevent stroke, save lives and enhance recovery. Thank you.
