Stroke fundraising, a long walk and a festival


CANBERRA woman, Beth Nassar, is planning to walk approximately 800kms in France and Spain following the Camino Pilgrimage trail, Camino Frances, to honour her father, Eric Pearsall, and to raise funds and awareness for the National Stroke Foundation.

After her father, Eric Pearsall, passed away following a stroke in 2008, Beth Nassar has begun a campaign aiming to raise $50,000 and awareness for the National Stroke Foundation.

Stroke in Australia kills more women than breast cancer, and more men than prostrate cancer. 1 in 6 people will have a stroke in their lifetime.

Frances’ Camino walk in 2015 is merely one aspect of this campaign.

StrokeZero will be held on Sunday September 21, from 12 to 8pm at King O’Malleys in Civic and will launch the “Remembering Eric” fundraising campaign.

StrokeZero will feature local talent:

  • Dylan Jay Hekimian
  • Trumpet Club
  • Positive Feedback Loop
  • Brass Knuckle Brass Band
  • Sparrow-Folk
  • Veronica’s Boyfriend
  • Minh Ha
  • James Anthony
  • Bruges

Tickets can be purchased for $30 from TryBooking, and all proceeds will be donated to the National Stroke Foundation.
