Hunter Stroke Olympics
Our Hunter Area Stroke Recovery Clubs participate in the Annual Hunter Stroke Olympics every October. It’s an Olympics like no other! Participants compete in Stroke-friendly games such as dominoes, quoits, euchre, indoor bowls, putting, card memory games and more.
Another successful Hunter Stroke Olympics was held at Raymond Terrace Bowling Club in October 2018. Over 90 Stroke Recovery Club members attended and a wonderful day of competition and friendship was enjoyed by all.
The overall champion Club for the fifth year was the Working Age Group- Stroke (WAGS) Recovery Club, located on the Central Coast. Individual winners came from the various clubs in attendance. The Battler of the year was Jeff Cole from the Sutherland/GLAMS Stroke Recovery Clubs and Volunteer of the Year went to Jodie Marquez of the University of Newcastle.
