My Activity Tracking


My target 100kms

Let's get/keep moving.

I am GP academic passionate about the importance of physical activity in the prevention of stroke and other manifestations of cardiovascular disease. To this end I have been running regularly for 48 years and bushwalking with the Hobart Walking club for 12 years. Let's raise some money for the Stroke Foundation and the important work they do and consider how we can integrate some form of enjoyable physical activity into our daily lives.

I am taking part in the Stroke Foundation’s Stride4Stroke to help Fight Stroke!

Sadly, 1 in 6 people will have a stroke in their lifetime.

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.

Thank you to my Sponsors
