Teesside Resolution Run Volunteer
Volunteers play a vital role at Stroke Association. As the leading stroke charity in the UK we know we need to change how people think about this devastating disease. But we can’t do it on our own. We need to work with people who share our commitment to changing the world for people affected by stroke - with stroke survivors and their families; with decision makers; with researchers and medics; as well as with our supporters and amazing volunteers.
Becoming a volunteer is both fun and fulfilling. Amongst other things, our volunteer community will be supporting our Resolution Run events, by helping to register runners on the day, giving out much-needed water and refreshments, cheering people on and handing out medals.
