Father and daughter raise $2500 for Stroke Foundation

A Woy Woy father and daughter have raised more than $2500 for the Stroke Foundation in the lead-up to the City to Surf Marathon on August 11

Mr Damian Muldoon and his seven-year-old daughter Isla, 7, tackled the 14km run.

They ran in memory of Damian's father, Mr Billy Muldoon, who lost his life to stroke five years ago.

Mr Muldoon said his dad suffered six or seven strokes between 2008 and 2014, which impacted him physically and mentally.

"Each time dad had made good progress in his recovery and was regaining his confidence, he would have another stroke and we would be back to square one," Mr Muldoon said.

"It was devastating for him and for the whole family.

"I moved back home to help support both of my parents.

"Stroke can be cruel and the challenges are ongoing, but I know my family is not the only one to experience its impact.

"There will be around 500 strokes in the Robertson electorate this year alone and almost 4000 stroke survivors are living in the community," he said.

Stroke Foundation NSW state manager Ms Rhian Paton-Kelly said: "It was likely an emotional day for Damian and Isla, but they can be incredibly proud of their efforts to help others with stroke.

"Prior to the event they had already raised more than $2300 for the Stroke Foundation which is an amazing achievement, and this will help in our mission to prevent stroke, save lives and enhance recovery."

The Muldoon's fundraiser is still active and by last week the pair had raised $2669 for the Stroke Foundation.

Anybody wanting to donate can visit the Everyday Hero website and search for In loving memory of William Muldoon.
