Nick's 21k for 21k

By Nick Beever

Raising 21K whilst I run 21k to celebrate my post stroke journey

I would like to invite my colleagues, family and friends to join me in raising funds and awareness for the Stroke Foundation. 

By setting the goal of running 21km in the 2022 Melbourne Marathon, I'm hoping to show recovering from a stroke is possible, it's hard but possible! After March 2018 the concept of walking again was a tough one so to run a half marathon again with the support of my family, friends and colleagues that got me to where I am today would be a great celebration of the journey undertaken over the last 4 years. 

I hope to raise vital awareness of the signs of stroke and achieve my goal of raising $21,000.

You can donate directly to my page. If you're intending to join me on my run, please be sure to purchase your tickets on the Melbourne Marathon website Nike Marathon - Nike Melbourne Marathon Festival

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

It’s estimated more than 27,400 people will have a stroke in Australia for the first time in 2022, 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.

My Updates

1 day to go

Saturday 1st Oct
The car is packed and we’re on the road to Melbourne. 
Thanks to everyone who has donated and helped me achieve my goal of raising $21,000.
When I first set the target I thought it would be a real struggle but thanks to so many generous donations we have reached the target with one day remaining. 
I am looking forward to the 21km run tomorrow and arriving at the ‘G’. It’ll be great to celebrate with everyone afterwards too.
Thanks

10 days to go!

Wednesday 21st Sep
It has been a busy few months spreading the message now the end is fast approaching. Thank you to everyone who has supported my fundraising efforts. We are getting close to hitting my goal of $21,000. Please keep spreading the word and sharing my link. If you’re free on Sunday 2nd October please come and celebrate the conclusion of my fundraiser in Richmond. 
Looking forward to catching up with you all then.

How it works!

Monday 4th Apr
Hi friends, 

First and foremost, I will be aiming to run 21km in this years Melbourne Marathon on 2nd October 2022.

I have set this page up to raise critical awareness of the signs of stroke, and to fundraise for the Stroke Foundation. 

You can donate directly to help me achieve my goal.

If you are intending on joining me in the Melbourne Marathon, you will still need to purchase a ticket directly through them. You can do that here Nike Marathon - Nike Melbourne Marathon Festival

Bring on the 21k for 21k!

Beeva, you’re an inspiration mate. Before the stroke I knew you were determined. Scraping together and getting up in the air. Chasing your dreams and doing it your own way. Now everyone can see just how tough you are. You’ve never given up and now you’ve got a chance to make it better for other people. Good work mate.
