Great to see Rotarians across New Zealand supporting Stroke Awareness Day by facilitating blood pressure checks on 1 October.  Remember the song ‘Staying Alive’? You want to stay that way? Strokes kill far too many people and are preventable which is why Rotary is supporting the national 2016 Big NZ Blood Pressure Check Day.



This is a huge campaign well done by the Stroke Foundation and well promoted including with TV star Miriama Kamo and comedian Mike King are using their experiences with stroke to help save people from “the silent killer”.

Thanks to the Rotary clubs in most communities working with New World, Pak’n Save, St John, Wellington Free Ambulance to make these free checks available for the community.
