What is Make May Purple for stroke?

Make May Purple for stroke is The Stroke Association's annual stroke awareness month. Friends, families and communities are invited to show their support for people who have been affected by stroke. Helping stroke survivors regain their independence couldn’t be easier. All you have to do is wear purple or turn your activities purple and every penny raised will help us provide support for stroke survivors. For further information and inspiration check out their website here. #MakeMayPurple
