It’s hats on for stroke support
Posted 25th October, 2012
The National Stroke Foundation is hosting its fundraising and awareness event, Thinking Caps for Stroke, on Friday 16 November.
The event is taking place for the second time due to the success of the inaugural day in 2011. Thinking Caps for Stroke is an opportunity for community members to don a hat to show support for the Stroke Foundation.
Stroke is the second biggest cause of death and a leading cause of disability in Australia, yet this silent killer does not get the attention it deserves. Thinking Caps for Stroke is an empowering way for every single Australian to contribute to raising the profile of stroke – it’s hats on for stroke support.
The Foundation is encouraging workplaces, schools and community groups to participate in this fundraising event.
“Last year we were humbled by the enthusiasm of groups around the country who donned hats to support the Foundation”, says National Stroke Foundation Chief Executive Officer, Erin Lalor.
Funds raised through Thinking Caps for Stroke will assist the National Stroke Foundation in providing vital services and programs to the Australian community.
“The money raised from this event will support our bold mission to stop stroke, save lives and end suffering caused by stroke”, says Dr Lalor.
