Join Capital Nordic Walking in supporting Nathan Nguyen's mission to raise awareness and funds for stroke and brain injury in young adults. Nathan will soon start his Nordic Walking Proficiency Course with us - look out for him on the paths!
THE AIM: Nathan is raising awareness for brain injury and stroke in young adults by undertaking the challenge of tackling 5 mountains in Canberra during National Stroke Week (2-8 Sept). He hopes to also raise vital funds for the Brain Foundation and Stroke Foundation.
WHAT HAPPENED: Nathan suffered a stroke at the age of 29 from a workplace accident in May 2017, which left him paralysed on his left side. Wheelchair bound, he has undergone multiple surgeries and months of rehabilitation, relearning how to walk. He continues to push himself to achieve the impossible each day on his long road to recovery.
