Become a Stroke Champion and walk or run Auckland Round the Bays on 6 March 2022!
Over 9,500 strokes are experienced in New Zealand each year - and this number is predicted to rise by 40% in the next decade. Thanks to supporters like you, the Stroke Foundation’s 28 Community Stroke Advisors (CSAs) were able to respond to over 5,500 stroke survivors in the last year, providing free, critical services to stroke survivors, and their family / whānau and carers, and help them achieve the best possible outcomes for their recovery.
With your help, we will be able to increase the hours of critical support we can offer, so register for the 8.4km fun run today and help us to support thousands of stroke survivors across the country.
