The Stroke Association is hosting a Step out for Stroke walk in Preston later this month.
This family fund-raising event, at Moor Park on Friday June 23, is open to everyone, regardless of age or ability and the charity is calling on people to register now and take part alongside local stroke survivors and their families.
The day, which starts at 11am, will include family-friendly activities including entertainment from the Stroke Association’s local choir.
Louise Lawless, community and events fund-raising manager at the Stroke Association, said: “We’re inviting the whole community to sign-up for our Step Out for Stroke event in Preston this year and help us make it an event to remember. Our Step Out for Stroke events mark a milestone for many stroke survivors taking part, and it’s an event that the whole family will enjoy.
“We’re looking forward to seeing some truly inspirational people who will be taking their first steps since their stroke. Everyone taking part will be joined by hundreds of people across the UK who are walking to raise vital funds for everyone affected by stroke.”
