Run to re-build lives affected by stroke
Join Team Stroke for the Bournemouth Marathon Festival 2021 and run to make a difference for stroke survivors across the UK.
Every year, there are more than 100,000 strokes in the UK; that's around one stroke every five minutes. The Stroke Association is the only UK wide charity solely concerned with combating stroke in people of all ages, working to create a world where there are fewer strokes and all those affected by stroke get the help that they need.
We provide crucial support to stroke survivors and their carers, raise awareness of the signs to look out for, fund groundbreaking research into prevention and treatment and campaign for better care.
