Dad inspires Brodie's run for charity
A SIX-year-old boy from Banff will put his running shoes on to raise money to help stroke survivors like his dad.
When Brodie Stewart was just four his father Barclay suffered a stroke. Thankfully he survived and with the support of his family and friends around him he made a full recovery.
Brodie is now on a mission to help others like his dad and their families who have been affected by stroke.
The determined young lad is making his family and friends proud by taking on the 600-metre run at Run Garioch, which takes place on March 24 in Inverurie, for Chest Heart and Stroke Scotland.
Brodie said: "I don't want anyone else's dads to have a stroke, it's really scary. I am really excited to run 600 metres."
Lisa Stewart, Brodie's mum, said: "When Brodie's dad had his stroke it came as a huge shock to the family, he was only 25, he had his whole life ahead of him. To see Brodie turn such a dark time for the family into something so positive and inspiring is making everyone so, so proud."
