Crewe and Nantwich Stroke Association hosted a Step out for Stroke walk at Reaseheath College, Nantwich, on Saturday 4th June. This family fundraising event is saw 56 participants, take part in the event.
Participants, who included stroke survivors and their families, walked or ran across the campus and covered distances that ranged from 0.5miles to 3.2 miles (5km). A fantastic £681 was raised for the Stroke Association on the day with further sponsorship yet to be collected.
Reaseheath’s Level 2 Animal Management students supported the event by volunteering on the day and all did a brilliant job!
The Step out for Stroke initiative is 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.
There are more than 14,600 strokes each year in the North West and over 157,370 people living with the effects of stroke.
