Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

For reasons that now escape me I decided late last year to run a marathon!  So I've entered the Brighton Marathon, along with about 9,999 others.

There are three of us from my village 'competing' in the event. Having survived three months of training I thought that it was probably safe to commit to making some good use of the effort - hence I'm now officially running to raise money for The Stroke Association (www.stroke.org.uk) since there is a history of stroke in my family. 

Every year an estimated 150,000 people in the UK have a stroke. Of all people who suffer from a stroke, about a third are likely to die within the first 10 days, about a third are likely to make a recovery within one month and about a third are likely to be left disabled and needing rehabilitation.

Stroke has a greater disability impact than any other medical condition. A quarter of a million people are living with long-term disability as a result of stroke in the UK.

 

 

The Stroke Association funds research into prevention, treatment and better methods of rehabilitation, and helps stroke patients and their families directly through its Life After Stroke Services. These include Information, Advice and Support, Communication Support and Life After Stroke grants.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

So please dig deep and donate now.
