May is Stroke Awareness Month and we are delighted to be supporting this charity initiative with a month-long steps challenge.
Split into two teams, 36 members of staff will each track their steps over the month to contribute to their team total and help us raise vital funds for the Jersey - Stroke Recovery Service.
Directors, Hannah Roynon-Jones and Sarah McBrearty will lead the two teams as they go head-to-head in the challenge.
"The Stroke Recovery Service provides essential support for Islanders and we are very pleased to continue our long-term support for this charity by helping to raise funds during their annual awareness month. Keeping active is important for all of us and this is an excellent opportunity to promote continued well-being among our team and whatever their existing fitness levels, the steps challenge gives everyone a chance to join in."
Stroke Awareness Month aims to raise awareness of the damaging effects of the Covid-19 pandemic on stroke research.
Jersey Stroke Recovery Service provides practical advice, emotional support and high-quality information following a stroke. Whether you are a stroke survivor, carer or family member, we will work with you to identify and address your physical needs through a personalised plan, and support you to rebuild your life after stroke.
