Step out for Stroke

Fun for all at Step out for Stroke

Step out for Stroke 2016

Strap on your walking shoes, apply the sun-block, get your friends, family and neighbours together and join us at one of our fun-filled sponsored walks. 

Everyone can Step out for Stroke, regardless of age or ability, and everyone is invited!

Step out for Stroke walks are typically one mile routes that you walk at your own pace and in your own time.  Whether you walk one step, 10 steps or the full mile, you’re doing something amazing to help us support everyone across the UK affected by stroke.

We even leave you to set your own fundraising target too, which we’ll help you to reach!

From Plymouth to Dundee, Antrim to Norfolk and St Helier, with 50 locations across the UK, check out where there’s a walk near you.

Every step makes a difference

Stroke occurs approximately 152,000 times a year in the UK; that is one every 3 minutes 27 seconds.  We are the UK’s leading stroke charity and we’re here for everyone affected by stroke; stroke survivors and their families. But we can’t reach everyone at the moment. 
With your help we can ensure over 1.2 million stroke survivors across the UK never have to face their recovery alone.  Thank you!
"Step out for Stroke is for everyone - stroke survivors, their families, friends and supporters. You get a real sense of being part of a special and supportive family. It’s nice to hear other stroke survivors’ stories and celebrate our achievements together."
Angharad, stroke survivor
