Step out for Stroke is an event for everyone affected by stroke, and can be as long or as short as participants can manage. For stroke survivors, this challenge often marks their first steps since their stroke.

Louise Lawless, community and events fund-raising manager at the Stroke Association, said: “We’re looking forward to seeing some truly inspirational people who will be taking their first steps since their stroke, and others who have challenged themselves to achieve new goals on the day.

“Step out for Stroke is a fun walk for everyone, no matter what your age or fitness level, it’s the perfect event to take part in alongside friends and family.

“It’s a chance to raise vital funds for the Stroke Association, so every step makes a difference, and we want Step out for Stroke 2016 to be our biggest year yet.
