Job description

Where: Tees Barrage, Tees Barrage Way, Stockton-on-Tees, Teesside, TS18 2QW

Date: 1 March 2020

Time: 9am – 1:30pm

Volunteer to support #TeamStroke in this year’s Resolution Run series, meet new people and help us rebuild lives together.

We’re looking for volunteers to fill a number of roles, from cheering on our amazing participants and making lots of noise as they make their way around the course to being a marshal who will safely direct participants around the course to get them across the finish line, or helping to register these fantastic people before the run starts.

All the roles are equally as important and we would really struggle to put on these events without you.

Why join #TeamStroke?

There are over 1.2 million stroke survivors in the UK and more than 100,000 strokes in the UK each year - that's one stroke every five minutes. With your support, we can provide peer-to-peer support to stroke survivors, provide vital services, campaign for better stroke care and fund research to find better treatments.

By volunteering with us, you can change the lives of those affected by stroke, and it could change your life too. You will gain a rewarding experience in supporting the UK's leading stroke charity.

On the day you will have the full support of the events team including a full briefing from the Event Manager which will also be sent out to you in advance.

Volunteers under 18 will require parental/carer consent and will need to be supervised by a parent/carer.

About Us

Stroke Association. Rebuilding lives after stroke.

When stroke strikes, part of your brain shuts down. And so does a part of you. That’s because a stroke happens in the brain, the control centre for who we are and what we can do. It happens every five minutes in the UK and changes lives instantly. Recovery is tough, but with the right specialist support and a ton of courage and determination, the brain can adapt.

We believe everyone deserves to live the best life they can after stroke. And it’s a team effort to get there.

We provide specialist support, fund critical research and campaign to make sure people affected by stroke get the very best care and support to rebuild their lives.

Every five minutes, stroke destroys lives. Help us rebuild them and join our team.
