​Stroke Association appeals for volunteers with a resolution

The Stroke Association is looking for volunteers to help guide runners at its upcoming Resolution Run at Rushcliffe Country Park on Sunday 18 March 2018.

The charity is appealing for people aged 16 and over to act as course marshals throughout the event from 9:30am-1:30pm. The marshals will help to guide runners along the route, while offering support and encouragement as people make their way around the course.

Over 30 Resolution Runs will be held all across the UK from 25 February - 22 April 2018, with runners able to choose their distance. The events are open to all ages and abilities, and participants can run, jog or walk their way to the finish line.

For further information please contact the Fundraising Team on 0115 871 2469 or email julie.doherty@stroke.org.uk
