Celebrating Michael - Paint a Pot - Stroke for Stroke

By Michael Karisson Join Me

I'm fundraising to prevent, treat and beat stroke!

I'm raising funds and awareness for Stroke Foundation to help prevent, treat and beat stroke.

Join me on the 2nd Dec at Robert Gordon Pottery, painting stroke by stroke, to create our unique and individual pottery pieces and to have a bit of fun.

$100 will include pottery piece, paint, glazing, finger food and a drink. 

If you prefer not to paint a piece, you are welcome to join us for finger food and a drink, $50.

Please book with my mum by 19th November. Funds raised will be donated to the stroke foundation. Hope you can join me!

Some background: 

Stroke attacks the brain, the human control centre, changing lives in an instant. It can happen to anyone, at any age and affects everyone differently.

Few people will think about stroke until it touches their life.

On 30th April 2022, at the age of 14, I had a stroke that impacted my movement and speech. I spent 2 months in hospital to regain function and have been working hard since to continue my recovery and build my strength.

Through the grace of God, I am here to tell my story and help raise awareness around stroke.

It’s estimated more than 27,400 people will have a stroke in Australia for the first time in 2023, equating to one stroke every nineteen minutes.

Stroke Foundation is a national charity that partners with the community to prevent stroke, save lives and enhance recovery.

With your support, Stroke Foundation can provide support to those affected right now and fund research to fight stroke.

Join me today in making a difference to stroke prevention, treatment and care. 

If you can’t join the event but would still like to donate, you can do this by simply making a donation via the link shared.
