Travel: Canary Wharf station. Canada Square North bus stop.

Start date: 26/04/2020 (one off event)

What will I be doing?

  • Volunteer to support #TeamStroke in the Virgin Money London Marathon, meet new people and help us rebuild lives together.
  • As a cheer point volunteer, you need to be ready to bring energy, make noise and share love to everyone choosing to run in support of the Stroke Association.
  • Not only will you be motivating the team to go that extra mile on the day, but also encouraging them to choose #TeamStroke for their next challenge and inspiring others to take part in our future events. All of this, in turn, will help us fund vital research, campaign for greater awareness and provide better stroke care.

What impact will this have?

  • There are over 1.2 million stroke survivors in the UK and more than 100,000 strokes in the UK each year - that's around one stroke every five minutes.
  • With your support, we can provide peer-to-peer support to stroke survivors, provide vital services, campaign for better stroke care and fund research to find better treatments.
  • By volunteering with us, you can change the lives of those affected by stroke, and it could change your life too.
  • You will gain a rewarding experience in supporting the UK's leading stroke charity.
