Runners' resolution raises money for Stroke Association

Leamington Editorial 24th Mar, 2016 Updated: 28th Oct, 2016   0

WARWICK Castle was awash with purple as runners raised funds for the Stroke Association.

Some 130 people completed took on the five kilometre Resolution Run – which gave people the opportunity to get fit after Christmas – around the historic grounds of the castle.

Stroke Association events manager, Katrin Winstanley said: “With around 152,000 strokes a year in the UK – that’s around one every three and a half minutes – it is vital that we have people like our Resolution Runners to raise funds and help us conquer stroke.

“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.”




At least half of strokes could be prevented if people made simple lifestyle changes, such as keeping blood pressure under control and exercising more.
