Press release -
Local woman’s fundraising challenge in memory of her grandfather
Arbroath woman, Caroline Swankie is taking part in the Stroke Association’s Resolution Run this coming Sunday in Dundee (25 February 2018.)
Caroline is doing the run in memory of her Grandfather who had a stroke at the age of 99 last year –four months before his 100th Birthday. Caroline is very aware of the devastating effects of a stroke and believes this is a good cause to run for.
“A stroke can affect everything we do from our mobility to our speech and our vision. My Grandfather would have found life very challenging had he had to deal with some of the cruel effects of a stroke.
“Running for such a great cause is ideal for me. I believe that stroke survivors should get all the support they can. I am committed to raising as much as I can to help the Stroke Association continue its work to help prevent and treat stroke and increase awareness.
Angie Macleod, Communications Manager at the Stroke Association in Scotland said:
“I am delighted to see Caroline taking part in our Resolution Run this Sunday. She is clearly committed to the cause and determined to make it to the finish line. I’m sure her Grandfather would be proud of her and we will be cheering her on to the end.”
The Stroke Association’s Dundee Resolution Run 2018 takes place on Sunday 25 February in Camperdown Park.
