Every year stroke foundation NZ run a very special event that helps keep thousands of Kiwis safe from stroke.
It's called the Big Blood Pressure Check and over the past 11 years, they have offered free blood pressure checks to around 150,000 New Zealanders.
That's because high blood pressure is a leading cause of stroke. A person with high blood pressure is up to seven times more likely to have a stroke than someone with normal or low blood pressure.
