At least half of strokes could be prevented if people made simple lifestyle changes, such as keeping blood pressure under control and exercising more.
“We’re extremely grateful to everyone who took part – it was a fantastic turn out and a great day for everyone involved. The money raised will fund vital research and support, as well as help to prevent people from having a stroke.”
The Stroke Association is the UK’s leading stroke charity which campaigns to improve stroke care; supports people to make the best recovery they can; and funds ground-breaking research to change the lives of people affected by stroke.
