“At a time when I was struggling, this kept me going...”
Stephen started running again after his partner, Justine, died from a stroke at just 46 years old.
Stephen formed #TeamJustine with his family, friends and neighbours, and they started training for their first half-marathon in 2018.
“It wasn’t just about getting fit or doing something in Justine’s memory – we were determined to raise awareness of the fact that it’s not just the elderly who have strokes.
"We’ll keep on raising money for the Stroke Association and making sure more people are aware of the crucial work they do.”
Through their running challenges, Stephen and #TeamJustine have now raised an amazing £25,500 in Justine’s memory.
