What is Step Out for Stroke?

Step Out for Stroke is the perfect opportunity for stroke survivors, friends and families to take part in a walk together. Each step you take helps raise awareness of stroke and vital funds for our work in supporting those affected by stroke.

The great thing about Step Out for Stroke is that you can walk at your own pace and in your own time. So, whether you walk just a few steps or the full mile, you’re doing something amazing. Don’t forget to encourage friends and family to enter too and join you on the walk.

What to expect on the day

Upon arrival at Abbey Gardens you will check in at our registration desk located opposite the Garden Café. The registration desk will be open from 10:15am. At 11am your Step Out event will begin, taking you on a three quarter mile walk around a circular route of the beautiful Gardens. All our Step Out for Stroke routes are suitable for all ages and abilities including stroke survivors.

How your support helps

When stroke strikes, part of your brain shuts down. And so does a part of you. Life changes instantly and recovery is tough. But the brain can adapt. Our specialist support, research and campaigning are only possible with the courage and determination of the stroke community. With more donations and support from you, we can rebuild even more lives.
