Spin for Stroke is a great way for you to cycle while raising vital funds for the Stroke Association.
Across the UK there are 1.3 million stroke survivors who need our support now more than ever.
Simply decide where you’ll do your cycle. You might choose to cycle from the comfort of your own living room, around a local park or perhaps to the shops.
Next up: decide how far you’ll cycle; will it be 25, 50 or 100 miles? Once you’ve decided, you’re ready to get cycling. Our digital pack will guide you through your Spin for Stroke challenge and we’ll be on hand to help you smash your personal fundraising target.
Why your fundraising is so important
There are over 1.3 million stroke survivors in the UK, with 100,000 strokes striking a year – that’s one stroke every 5 minutes.
- £14.40 provides telephone befriending support to a stroke survivor for 12 weeks.
- £56 could cover the costs of setting up a new volunteer, so they are ready to support voluntary groups in their community.
- £80 could pay for a stroke survivor to attend a six-week computer course, a vital communication tool to aid recovery and beyond.
- £150 could help pay for research into new stroke treatments, as we did with thrombolysis - a clot-busting drug that returns the blood supply to the brain that has transformed the outcomes of stroke survivors who have received it.
