St. Richard’s Stroke Team are doing @24Marathons24Hr for #charity

Could you exercise for a full 24 hours?

On 19th February, the stroke team working at St Richards Hospital, Chichester are doing just that, raising money to improve the hospital’s stroke ward facilities and equipment.

Sophie from the charity 24Marathons24Hours said:

For anyone who has had a stroke, or knows someone who has suffered from one, the road to recovery is never easy, and we are marking this with our own journey over 24 hours of gruelling activity.

It is hoped that with enough donations, we as a team can utilise the funds to make a real difference to the experiences of future patients on the Stroke Assessment and Rehabilitation ward, Lavant ward.

Physiotherapist, Kara McManus said:

We wanted to try a 24-hour challenge to raise awareness of the fact that stroke patients have to live with their difficulties 24 hours a day.

We’ll be using bikes, running and rowing machines, and between us hope to clock up the equivalent mileage of 24 marathons in 24 hours.

To give stroke patients the very best start to their rehabilitative journey it is imperative that they are in a purpose-fit, comfortable environment with a range of assistive equipment. This is something this team is passionate to improve on with their fundraising efforts.
