We support people to help rebuild lives after stroke.


On Sunday 18th September we are running the Reigate Half Marathon dressed as a camel. Hoping to beat the current record of 2hrs 3mins. 

As some of you may know our Grandma (Mum's side) suffered a pretty big stroke 12 years ago, losing her speech, much of her mobility and her freedom to do many things by herself. She proved many wrong by surviving so long after the stroke, but she sadly passed away on Mother's Day this year, hours after we had visited her in hospital. Fred and I are committed to completing this challenge now in honour of Grandma and to the benefit of the Stoke Association.

We fully appreciate very few people have levels of disposable money to continually donate to running freaks who tackle marathons, however, it would be great if you could spare whatever amount you are happy with to help make a difference to thousands who have suffered strokes, making rehabilitation to life as known before possible post-stroke.
