The Stroke Foundation’s Hike for Health is an epic trekking adventure that will see you explore the most spectacular sections of the Larapinta Trail, with expert guides and support crew, to raise funds to prevent stroke, save lives and enhance recovery.
The Larapinta Trail is regarded as one of Australia’s premier walking tracks. From the old Alice Springs Telegraph Station to the peak of Mount Sonder, the trail stretches 223 kilometres along the backbone of the West MacDonnell Ranges.
As part of this incredible – yet challenging – adventure, you will stand on ancient escarpments and gaze out upon the ochre-coloured landscapes of Central Australia. You will follow Aboriginal Dreaming tracks and trek beside one of the world’s oldest
By day, you will challenge yourself as you trek across the Red Centre, experiencing the diversity of desert habitats and learn the unique history of Australia’s Indigenous peoples. At night, you will fall asleep to the sounds of native wildlife under a blanket of stars.
In 2020 there will be almost 56,000 new and recurrent strokes, that is one stroke every 9 minutes.
Stroke is one of Australia’s biggest killers and a leading cause of disability. It kills more women than breast cancer and more men than prostate cancer. Stroke attacks the brain, the human control centre, changing lives in an instant. Yet this disease can mainly be prevented, it can be treated and it can be beaten. With your support the Stroke Foundation will partner with the community to raise awareness and work to prevent, treat and beat stroke. By signing up to the Larapinta Trek, you will not only be reducing your own risk of stroke by exercising, you will also raise much needed funds for the Stroke Foundation.
