With everything going on at the moment, exercise may not be a top priority but it is important to keep your fitness up both for your physical and mental well being.
Use your daily outdoor exercise wisely and remember there are ways to exercise without leaving the comfort of your own home. Check out some tips that we found useful:
We know that training might be tricky right now, so please make sure you are looking after yourself and only exercise if you feel able to. And remember to continue to follow the most up-to-date government advice. Remember, you can always convert your outdoor training to indoor exercise! Why not do 1km on the stairs? This is approximately 1,300 steps. 5km is 6,500 steps and 10km is 13,000 steps. Utilise what you have at home!
Why your fundraising is so important
There are over 1.2 million stroke survivors in the UK, with 100,000 strokes striking a year – that’s one stroke every 5 minutes.
Just £14.40 provides telephone-befriending support to a stroke survivor for 12 weeks. So, whatever your personal fundraising target is, it’s thanks to you that more people affected by stroke are now facing a more promising future.
From helping to fund pioneering stroke research, to enabling us to provide Life After Stroke services, your support really does have a massive impact – thank you.
