This spring, we are inviting you to join thousands of our amazing supporters across the UK to take part in Step Out for Stroke 2018. Just by walking, you can help us make a real difference for stroke survivors and families living in your local community.
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 was a record-breaking year for Step Out and you helped us to raise over £200,000. We know that with your continued support in 2018, 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.
Anna Richardson is calling on you
TV presenter and writer Anna Richardson is calling on you to take a Step Out for Stroke.
In 2014 Anna's father had a stroke. He was just at home on his computer when suddenly he felt confused and couldn't make sense of the letters on the screen. Fortunately he managed to stumble to a friend's house who recognised that he was having a stroke. He's now recovered most of his physical and mental ability but has been left with weakness down his left side.
Help to regain their independence
This year, helping stroke survivors regain their independence couldn’t be easier. You can read about how Alastair, after suffering a brain haemorrhage at 57, is regaining his and how taking part in Step Out for Stroke helped.
