Roald Dahl, the nation's favourite children's author, played a part in creating the Stroke Association.
Our fantastic stroke community are generously giving time to volunteer at stroke groups and fundraising events, bravely sharing their stroke stories, proudly adding their voices to our campaigns, getting fit by joining one of our sponsored walks, putting their organisational skills to good use by setting up bake sales or even simply pledging to make donations.
We’d love you to join us by holding your own Give a Hand and Bake sale to raise some serious dough to help change the story for stroke survivors.

Rough Runner is a distance running event with fun and challenging obstacles along the way. Inspired by TV shows like Gladiators and Total Wipeout, it will take you on an epic journey through Sweeper Arms, a 40m water slide, and the legendary Travelator! There are distances to suit everyone, from 5k to 15k.
We hold events across the North East and are always looking to recruit volunteers to support us. From zip slides to the Great North Run – we need your help in getting the word out.

The Stroke Association works with and for stroke survivors. We work with all stakeholders who have an interest in stroke, including the pharmaceutical industry, to achieve a common goal - to conquer stroke. Our guidelines ensure our approach to working with pharmaceutical companies is transparent and cannot compromise our independence.
