ABOUT STRIKE OUT STROKE
Strike Out Stroke® has been developed and is being directed by an independent group of volunteers with varying professional backgrounds, who are deeply concerned about the current statistics of stroke.
1 in 6 people will have a stroke in their lifetime and if you also take into consideration their carers this equates to almost 1 million Australians currently living with the effects of stroke. That is more than 5% of our current population!
We have developed this very exciting campaign with the vision
To enhance awareness and promote early recognition of the signs and symptoms of stroke to B.E.F.A.S.T. for treatment.
To raise funds for research and support services for those affected by stroke.
We have partnered with Softball Australia with whom we have developed a game of Tee Ball or Softball to run throughout primary schools with the aim of educating children about the symptoms of stroke, while stressing the need to lead a healthy lifestyle.
