I have decided to raise money for Thyroid UK again this year, a charity who aim to raise awareness of thyroid conditions and promote better diagnosis and treatment.
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!
As thyroid patients, we know better than anyone what this condition does to its host, but by supporting charities such as Thyroid UK, we can fight to create change in how we’re perceived, how we’re treated and our quality of life.
The Colour Rush will be a real challenge for most of the team, due to various health conditions, but we’ll be supporting each other round the 5k course, which sees participants showered in a different coloured powder at each 1k, meaning they finish looking like a rainbow with big grins on their faces!
You can sponsor me and my team here – https://mydonate.bt.com/fundraisers/teamfabulousforthyroiduk#.WLa64TlvZjE.facebook
Thank you 🙂
I would love to reach £100 as my target.
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.
