Ken takes a step to the future.

SHELDON resident Ken Rudge, aged 59, will be showing that there's life after a stroke by taking part in his third Step Out for Stroke fundraising walk at Kings Heath Park on Sunday, May 18.

Ken was inspired to take part in his third Step Out event in Birmingham after he had a stroke in 2011. Each year Ken walks with his wife and daughter to raise awareness of stroke.

The fundraising walk is part of Action on Stroke Month, when the Stroke Association aims to promote stroke awareness and prevention as well as raising vital funds for the charity.

The Rudge family hope to encourage other people from Birmingham to sign up and raise some funds for the Stroke Association.

Ken said: "Step out for Stroke is a fun walk that everyone can be part of, no matter what your age or fitness level. It's a great opportunity to not only have a family day out, but to meet other stroke survivors and their families. Since my stroke in 2011, the Stroke Association has supported me and my family, so I'm delighted help raise awareness through this walk."
