Tassie Iconic Walk

We're fundraising to prevent, treat and beat stroke!

Hello, I'm back again to call on you to help us support the Stroke Foundation. This is quite obviously a year like no other and for this year's "Stroke Babies" the challenges will be even greater than I faced. 

To that end, I've upped the ante and am signing up a bunch of likeminded souls to the 2020 Tasmanian Iconic Walk - A 17km hike along the cliff faces and coastline of the Tasman Peninsula on November 7.

Please support this cause anyway you can, be it through donation, learning the FAST message and your personal risk factors for stroke or by spreading the word. Every one of those measures will help improve the figures below:

This year there will be almost 56,000 new and recurrent strokes, that is one stroke every 9 minutes.
Stroke is one of Australia's biggest killers and a leading cause of disability. It kills more women than breast cancer and more men than prostate cancer.

Thank you to our Sponsors

Great cause mate, my father passed away after a stroke and a short time in hospital. Have fun on the walk, and the best thing to help prevent heart disease is a healthy life style.



You are an inspiration Matt!
