As we begin to return to our normal activities, we will need your support. We are looking for events volunteers to support our #TeamStroke participants on event day. If you want to be part of a fantastic team and learn new skills whilst doing something wonderful for charity, volunteering is for you!


We have a range of events with different volunteering opportunities for you to take on. As an events volunteer, you could get involved as a:

  • Cheer point volunteer (located on the event route).
  • Photographer volunteer (located on the event route or at our post-race reception/ charity village).
  • Massage volunteer (located at our post-race reception/ charity village. This role requires proof of public liability insurance and qualification).
  • Many more!

Now you have an idea of the roles and events, all you have to do is complete our volunteer registration form. Here, you can provide us with all the events and roles you are interested in. Then, once you’ve signed up with us and provided your contact details, we’ll be in touch to discuss the best opportunity/ies for you.

What our volunteers have to say

Keith and Angela Laundon

Event: Brighton Marathon Weekend 2022

Role: Cheer point volunteers

“My wife and I both felt we needed to support the Stroke Association in view of my stroke last June. We also volunteered as we wanted to cheer on our nephew who was cycling for the Stroke Association and was sponsored by family and friends achieving a grand figure of over £600. It was a fantastic day cheering on all competitors.” 


Vicky Stoggles

Event: Brighton Marathon Weekend 2022

Role: Photographer

“I volunteered as I wanted to give back and it was also an opportunity to combine this with my passion for photography. It was an amazing day! The other volunteers were so lovely, welcoming and positive, which gave a real boost to the event as well as the marathon participants. It felt so good to help out, even in just a small way and to be able to support all involved; people's faces would light up as they were cheered on and encouraged to keep going. If anyone is thinking of volunteering I would say 100% go for it, you will not regret it!”


Sarah Harris

Event: Great Birmingham Run 2022

Role: Cheer point volunteer

“I wanted to volunteer as I have participated in the Great Birmingham Run myself before on two occasions. I could not have completed the races without the support from the crowd cheering me on. It is such a good atmosphere on the day and the other volunteers were lovely too. My Mum had a stroke 11 years ago so I had even more reason to volunteer. I would definitely do it again.”
