I’m taking on the challenge of Stride4Stroke and raising funds for Stroke Foundation!
Hi there, I'm taking on the challenge of Stride4Stroke and raising funds for Stroke Foundation to help prevent stroke, save lives and enhance recovery.
Did you know stroke is one of Australia's biggest killers and there is one stroke every 19 minutes, even though more than 80% of strokes can be prevented?
Stroke doesn't discriminate; it affects anyone, anytime, even unborn babies. It claims more lives than breast cancer in women and prostate cancer in men. Even more distressing, around 600 Australian children experience stroke each year.
Your support can make a significant difference, and I kindly ask you to help me reach my fundraising goal by making a donation. It only takes a minute, and any amount you can give, no matter how large or small, will go a long way in supporting Stroke Foundation's vision of a world free from disability and suffering caused by stroke.
With your generosity, the Stroke Foundation will be able to:
Prevent Stroke: By empowering a greater proportion of adult Australians to recognize the modifiable risk factors for stroke, we can increase their chances of preventing stroke and living healthier lives.
Save Lives: Your support will enable hospitals and healthcare providers across Australia to enhance their capabilities in stroke care and rehabilitation services, ultimately saving more lives.
Enhance Recovery: By reaching out to those affected by stroke, the Stroke Foundation ensures that more Australians can access reliable information, resources, and essential post-stroke support, promoting a better recovery journey for stroke survivors.
Your donation will directly contribute to these critical initiatives, bringing hope, assistance, and improved outcomes to stroke survivors and their families.
Thank you for your support. Your generosity means a lot to me.
Smashed through the $7,000 targetThanks to all my fabulous supporters who have helped me reach the second target of $7,000! I am well on the way to getting to my moving minutes target of 3,000 steps as well and being active always helps keep the mind healthy as well during times of high stress.
Thanks to all my fabulous supporters so far but let's keep goingI have just lifted my target from $1000 to $7000 and truly hope I can get more supporters! Imagine if we found a way to stop stroke and stop the devastation it causes its sufferers..... It not only causes physical disability but 30% of people who have a stroke suffer cognitive decline, a fact I certainly wasn't aware of.
