Time is running out to nominate an inspirational person in your community for the Stroke Foundation’s 2020 Stroke Awards. Nominations close this Friday 14 February 2020.

The Stroke Awards are held annually and recognise individuals who have gone above and beyond to make life better for people with stroke. These include carers, stroke survivors, researchers, health professionals, volunteers and members of the community.

Winner of the 2019 Volunteer of the Year Award Kevin English said it was a tremendous honour to be named as a finalist in his category, let alone win the award.

“There are so many people in the community striving to make the future brighter for people impacted by stroke. I was thrilled to be recognised for my volunteering efforts at Stroke Foundation,” Kevin said.

“If you know someone who should be recognised for their dedication to stroke, please nominate them. It’s a wonderful way of letting them know their efforts are appreciated and important.”

Stroke is one of Australia’s biggest killers and a leading cause of disability. It happens in an instant and its impact can be devastating.

“The Stroke Foundation Stroke Awards are a way to celebrate people like Kevin, who donate a great deal of their own time to lessen the burden of stroke on the community,” Ms McGowan said.

“These individuals are collectively making a difference to the state of stroke in this country.”

The 2020 Stroke Foundation Stroke Awards run across six categories: Improving Life After Stroke Award, Creative Award, Fundraiser of the Year Award, Courage Award, Volunteer of the Year Award and President’s Achievement Award.

Winners will be announced at the Stroke Foundation’s Stroke Awards ceremony in Melbourne on 5 May.
