This event is held for all stroke patients and their families to celebrate National Stroke Week 2017, celebrate life after stroke, share stories and promote awareness in our local community of stroke symptoms and to act FAST.
The Walk also raises funds for The Stroke Recovery Association of NSW which provides essential support for stroke survivors and carers in the community. We were fortunate to have Board Members, Lyn Glanfield and Jim Towers, from The Association, join our activities and support the occasion.
The Stroke Wellness Walk continues to grow each year and despite the windy conditions, this year was our best attended to date. Stroke survivors were joined by hospital volunteers, staff and patients as they completed one of two circuits, the many taking on our “Two kilometre Challenge”.
Congratulations to all the participants!
Celebrations and Award giving continued on the Metroehab Hospital Balcony. A delicious lunch was sponsored by our partner, Independent Living Specialists, followed by a round of singing led by Sydney Stroke Rehabilitation Centre’s Music Therapist.
