My Activity Tracking
My target 79 kms
My Reason for participatingHello and thanks for reading my blog. Two and a Half weeks ago my Father had a stroke unfortunately and is still recovering in hospital. Due to other medical complications his recovery is extremely slow. I am doing this fundraising to raise much needed funds for stroke recovery and prevention. I cannot imagine what It would feel like to have a stroke, unable to do things for yourself. I am doing 79kms as he will turn 79 in November so 1km for each year of my dad. Thank you xx
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.
I have picked my Stride4Stroke activity goal and I’m ready to go!
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.
