I’m taking part in Stride4Stroke to help prevent, treat and beat stroke!

Stroke is one of Australia’s biggest killers and a leading cause of disability.

I had a bad stroke almost 7 years ago whilst out riding my bike. I had to learn to walk again and I was told by my specialist that I would never ride a bike again.  Within 6 months, I proved him wrong and started riding again with small rides up and down my local road. Now, I am able to ride over 100km in a single ride.  

After my stroke, I was also weak in one side of my body but since riding again, I have regained my strength. I also swim and go to the gym regularly to keep active.

In Australia currently, 12% of people say they won’t have exercised this week. One million strokes a year globally are linked to physical inactivity. One of the things we can do to reduce our risk of stroke, or secondary stroke, is to keep active.

So this November I’m taking part in Stride4Stroke to raise vital funds and awareness for Stroke Foundation.

Stroke Foundation is committed to raising community awareness about stroke and stroke prevention, advocating for increased access to specialised stroke treatment and rehabilitation care, and supporting research into innovative treatments for the benefit of all Australians.

Please join me in my fight against stroke today by donating and helping share my story.

Thank you in advance.

So far I have helped Stroke Foundation deliver…

Advice and support from a health professional on StrokeLine

Stroke recovery packs to 3 survivors of stroke.

Training to a StrokeSafe volunteer to deliver community talks.

Funding to stroke researchers to find the next game-changer in stroke.

Thank you to my Sponsors

The best of luck with the fundraising Phil, wishing you happy and safe cycling

Brain injury must surely make it tough for the sufferer to interact in the public arena. However the close knit Murray Bridge Derailleurs cycling community is very accepting and willing to assist in the step-by-step road to recovery.


Wayne Overmeyer

Good luck for your ride. You're a champion 🏆
