Step Out for Stroke

archie ct2It is that time of year again.

Once more, Master and I will be taking part in a  Step Out for Stroke event – this time at Broughty Ferry near Dundee on 15 May. This involves a 2.5 mile walk along the esplanade, and my personal challenge will be not just to complete the course with Master, but to behave impeccably throughout. As anyone will agree, this is a major challenge for any handsome, energetic young whippet – let alone a ne’er do well like me.

As a follower of this blog, you may feel some mild guilt, but you are under no obligation to sponsor us, though if you wish to do so, you may care to know that everything we raise – every last penny, biscuit and bone – will go to the  Deeside Stroke Group which meets weekly and provides a professionally run exercise class for people affected by stroke and other neurological conditions. Funds we raise are used to purchase equipment and to make the class affordable for all. We get great support from the Stroke Association, and we plug a major gap in health and social care services locally. A great benefit for me is that, by going to this class, Master retains sufficient fitness to accompany me on a daily walk in the woods near our home – good for him, and good for me.

If you would like to sponsor us, click here for details. I’ll let you know how we get on.

The sun will definitely shine beside the silvery Tay on 15 May, so if you live near Dundee (and even if you don’t) and would like to take part in the Step Out for Stroke event yourself, or know of someone – or some dog – who would, click here for full details.
