Litherland woman takes on Southport 10k after stroke

CLAIRE Rooney, 36, from Litherland, is taking on the Southport 10k, on Sunday, 2 July 2017, just over a year after she survived a life changing stroke. In April 2016, Clare had a stroke caused by 6 blood clots. The stroke affected Clare's balance and the movement in her left side, as well as leaving her with severe tinnitus, anxiety and fatigue.

Clare said:- "The stroke really shook me up, but with lots of help and support from the Stroke Association and the community stroke team, I have my confidence back. I feel even better than I did before my stroke. Now, I really want to give something back and mark a huge personal achievement by taking part in the Southport 10k. I've chosen to raise funds for the Stroke Association to help other stroke survivors and their families to get the support they need. I've just starting my training and I'm nervous about the day; I haven't run since I was a child! All this has helped me and my dog buddy get out for walks together again."

Laura McMullin, Community and Events Fundraiser at the Stroke Association, said:- "With around 100,000 strokes in the UK each year, it's vital we have people like Clare to help raise vital funds. We're incredibly grateful to Clare for taking on the Southport 10k for the Stroke Association; the money raised will go a long way in helping to support others who are living with the effects of stroke, as well as their families and carers."
