Stroke is one of Australia's biggest killlers.
Stroke Foundation is committed to a world free from disability and suffering caused by stroke. Stroke is one of Australia's biggest killers and there is one stroke every 19 minutes, even though more than 80% of strokes can be prevented.
One of the things we can do to reduce our risk of stroke, or secondary stroke, is to keep active. Research tells us 30 minutes of exercise five times a week can reduce your stroke risk by 25 percent.*
Every dollar you raise and every moving minute you log will take Stroke Foundation one step closer to preventing stroke, saving lives and enhancing recovery for more Australians.
