Nat strides 50km for Stroke Foundation

NOVEMBER sees the Stroke Foundation’s annual Stride 4 Stroke campaign kick off and Hamilton’s Natalie Templeton is joining the campaign for the first time.

The Stroke Foundation means a lot to Natalie and her family after her eldest sister, Kate Comer suffered a stroke four years ago.

Kate’s incident resulted in a lot of stress and put the family through an emotional rollercoaster, but also put things into perspective.

At just 34 years of age, the fit, healthy mother of two felt herself enter a state she had never experienced before.

Half of Kate’s body went numb, she could not stand up, falling to the floor and losing control her body.

The experience rocked the entire family and it is now striding to ensure if it happens to someone else, they receive the attention and care required.
