This November, I’m taking part in Stroke Foundation’s Stride4Stroke to help prevent, treat and beat stroke!

Strollers 4 Stroke is a group of Cairns based mums who are fundraising and challenging our community this November to come together and Stride4Stroke. 


Did you know that one in four people have a stroke in their lifetime? Our team has been personally impacted by stroke and that's the biggest thing about stroke -  it doesn't just impact the stroke survivors - it impacts the lives of their families and friends.  


Team Member Tara-Lee was eight weeks pregnant in 2017 when she suffered a Right Thalamic Stroke from a combination of things - changes in blood with pregnancy causing a clot and an unknown heart birth defect Patent Foramen Ovale. It was with the unwavering support from her family and friends that she was able to survive and thrive in life after stroke. 


Team member Sarah survived a stroke in February this year, 6 days after the birth of her daughter, Stevie. The left side Parietal Lobe Stroke has meant that Sarah has required intensive therapy for speech and language issues and experiences right side weakness. Stevie has been all the motivation Sarah needs on her road to recovery.


Stroke is one of Australia's biggest killers, taking the lives of 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.


Please support our group Strollers 4 Stroke in our Stride4Stroke challenge with a donation today and even better, join us at one of our walking events in November. 


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!

I just wanted to say a massive thank you to my friends and family who helped me raise over $4000 for the Stride4Stroke campaign. I hoped to raise $500, so to be able to give that amount of money to the Stroke Foundation is just amazing! 

Stevie and I ended up walking 80km for the month. Way better than I thought I’d manage at the start of the month - and I feel stronger for it.

We had lots of company along the way - thank you to the everyone who joined us and showed your support. 

Big shout out to my team mate and fellow stroke survivor Tara-Lee Henry who reached her goal in the very final weeks of pregnancy. I know what I was doing in my final weeks of pregnancy and it wasn’t walking over 50km! Impressive.

Every step you make, you honour the young and older sufferers of stroke. Thankfully these days there is so much early treatment compared to my Mum's generation where Mum 58 yrs had no chance of early intervention and emotional care! Thank you Sarah!
