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.

Last year, over 4000 people stepped out and helped raise over £130,000. We know that with your continued support in 2019, we can make this year the biggest and best yet. 

The money you raise will help us to continue providing much-needed support to stroke survivors and their loved ones. 

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.

Why take part

Stroke strikes every five minutes and is the leading cause of disability in the UK. For many stroke survivors getting their life back means overcoming life-changing disabilities and emotional difficulties.

With the right support many stroke survivors are able to rebuild their lives, but re-gaining independence doesn’t happen on its own. We support stroke survivors to find new ways to live their lives.

Whether you’re aiming to take your first steps or challenging yourself to walk a few miles for sponsorship, our Step Out for Stroke events are supportive and rewarding.

Volunteering

Being a volunteer is both fun and fulfilling. Amongst other things our volunteer community will be supporting our Step Out for Stroke events, by helping to register walkers on the day, congratulating our walkers on their achievement cheering people on and handing out medals.

With your support, we can do so much more to provide vital local and national services for people affected by stroke.

Please register your interest in volunteering at a Step Out for Stroke and we'll be in touch soon.
