My Story

To be honest, I didn't know much about stroke before I joined the fundraising team at the Stroke Foundation in 2016. This is probably because stroke is super under-rated as a disease. Access to appropriate treatment and rehabilitation is really poor, especially in regional and rural areas, and investment in services and research that would remedy this situation massively lags behind other diseases.

This is quite outrageous, given that 1 in 6 Australians will suffer a stoke in their lifetime, and that stroke is the largest cause of disability globally. I speak with people every day who need your help.

I have been roped into doing Run Melbourne by a rather inspiring (and naggy) colleague. It's a big deal for me because I DON'T RUN. No really, I don't run. That kind of exertion stopped for me when I left primary school... Many of you have sponsored me with physical challenges in the past (most notably 200km bike rides and 60km walks). I know it sounds ridiculous, but I am far more daunted by the idea of a 5km run. So please, take pity on me and throw some coin this way by clicking on the "Give Now" button. You'll be doing an amazing thing to help prevent, treat and beat stroke.
