I am delighted to support the STRIKE OUT STROKE campaign which will educate Australians about stroke and will create awareness of the signs and symptoms of stroke.
I congratulate Vivienne Harkness and her wonderful team of volunteers at STRIKE OUT STROKE for their invaluable work in creating awareness of the signs and symptoms of stroke and importantly the need to B.E.F.A.S.T. This is particularly important in Australia where only 36% of people showing the signs and symptoms of stroke arrive in emergency in time to have lifesaving treatment.

Kew Primary School was delighted to host the Launch of Strike Out Stroke. It was a wonderful event and the students really enjoyed their participation. It is such a fun, exciting concept, with invaluable elements, including the promotion of healthy living through playing the game of softball and also creating awareness of the signs and symptoms of stroke.I would strongly recommend other primary schools get involved.
