Former Olympic swimmer Sharron Davies is urging Wearsiders to stride out for charity.

Sharron is championing the Stroke Association’s 2015 Step out for Stroke series and is encouraging stroke survivors, their families, friends and supporters in Sunderland to sign up to the sponsored walking event in Barnes Park on Saturday, June 20.

She said: “Stroke has affected my family so I’ve seen first-hand just how devastating its effects can be. Step out for Stroke celebrates the achievements of stroke survivors as they walk alongside their friends and family, all while helping to raise vital funds for the Stroke Association.

“Each walk is wheelchair accessible and suitable for any level of walking ability. Participants can walk at their own pace, in their own time. Ultimately, Step out for Stroke celebrates the brave steps in a stroke survivor’s recovery.”
