The Stroke Association will be hosting a Step out for Stroke walk on May 7, taking place at The Esplanade in Broughty Ferry.
Starting at 11am, this family fundraising event 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.
Kirsty Scott, Community and Events Fundraising Manager - Scotland, at the Stroke Association, said: “We’re inviting the whole community to come to this fun day out 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.”
A stroke is a brain attack which happens when the blood supply to the brain is cut off, caused by a clot or bleeding in the brain. In Scotland around 15,000 people have a stroke every year and over 121,000 people live with the effects of stroke.
