National Stroke Week Highlights

2020 Highlights

There were over 2,000 registrants from across the country!

So many different organisations got involved – ensuring the F.A.S.T. (Face, Arms, Speech and Time) message got out there in the community - from Coles Distribution Centres to Royal Flying Doctors Service and Universities.

Given Covid-19 restrictions, everyone embraced the online resources and the personalised posters (check them out below):

Prime Minister Scott Morrison even shared the F.A.S.T. message and was the first PM in the history of National Stroke Week to do so.

Everyone got creative and had some fun in how they shared the F.A.S.T. message. This one really got us going, check out the hilarious video from Shoalhaven Hospital, NSW below

Brisbane Boys College raised vital funds for the Paediatric Stroke Project by selling cookies. A huge thanks to Brisbane Boys' College for your support!

Inspiring young Tasmanian stroke survivors loved the opportunity to have a personalised poster developed for them.
