The Stroke Association’s 2014 Step out for Stroke sponsored walk will take place in Antrim on Sunday, May 18.

People taking part in the walk set their own pace and distance they want to cover.

The charity walk is a huge achievement for stroke survivors taking part, and the event is often a chance for them to take their first steps since having a stroke.

The flat course starts and finishes beside Clotworthy House and is one mile in length. Depending on your ability you can set your own distance: 10 steps, 100 metres, 1 mile or 10 laps.

Sharon Millar, a Speech and Language Therapist, who runs one of the Stroke Association’s communications programmes in Antrim, said: “Every step matters on the road to recovery and we support stroke survivors to make their best possible recovery.”

The group meets in Greystone Community Centre, and supports local stroke survivors who suffer from a communication condition called aphasia.
