Why I am Striding for Stroke 2019This year I am Striding for Stroke in honour of my amazing Mum who passed away in July 2018. This is my second time participating in Stride4Stroke and I really hope to continue to honour and remember my Mum in a way that not only helps survivors of Stroke but helps continue research into this disease. Every 9 minutes some in Australia has a stroke. With a variety of ages it really can affect anyone. You can make a difference, big and small. A great way to start is knowing the signs of Stroke with the acronym FAST. F: Face, is the persons face dropping? A: Arms, can they lift both of their arms? S: Speech, is the persons speech slurred and can they understand you? T: Time, if someone has any of these symptoms call 000 immediately. Another way you can make a difference this November is to sponsor me as I aim to walk 300km in the month of November in order to help the Stroke Foundation continue research and support survivors and families of stroke. $2 can make the biggest difference and is tax deductible. I miss my mum every single day and by doing this campaign really helps keep her memory alive and make a difference to so many people. Sending lots of love to all.
This November, I’m taking part in Stroke Foundation’s Stride4Stroke to help prevent, treat and beat stroke!
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. But stroke’s impact doesn’t need to be this great, research indicates that around 80 percent of strokes are preventable.
So, I need your help to Fight Stroke. It’s going to be a challenge, but it’s nothing compared to those who are impacted by stroke. Please sponsor me today to support me and together we can Fight Stroke!
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.
