My Fundraising For Thyroid UK 2016

The Color Run 5k Manchester – 02-July-2016

I decided I wanted to raise money for Thyroid UK, a charity who aim to raise awareness of thyroid conditions, promote better diagnosis and treatment. Thyroid UK struggle as a charity to raise funds, as it’s not a well-known charity, and neither is thyroid disease itself, but the charity is close to my heart.

It is estimated that 200 million people in the world have some form of thyroid disease, including 1 in 20 people in the UK. As many as 60% are undiagnosed, and of those diagnosed, a lot are not adequately treated!

You can see more information and/or sponsor me/donate on the link below:

I would love to reach £300 as my goal.

I have used BT MyDonate over JustGiving, as they give the charities a lot more of the money raised. JustGiving take a big chunk of what’s donated.

I run a Facebook group, called Thyroid Family: Hypothyroidism Advice & Support Group. This group is for underactive thyroid/hypothyroidism patients only, and not medical professionals or anyone else. If you have any questions on living with hypothyroidism, or want some support, help or advice, please join us. 

I also run a group for the spouses, partners and other halves of hypothyroid patients, called Hypothyroid Patients Other Halves – Support & Advice Group. This is for the other halves only and not patients.
