Fundraising 2017 – Some Goodies From Thyroid UK

A few weeks ago, I explained how I’d decided to fundraise for Thyroid UK again this summer. Last July, I completed The Color Run and raised £437.50 including gift aid. This year, I’ve set a modest target of £100 and am being joined by four team mates, for The Fun Colour Rush, which looks very similar to The Color Run, but has a cheaper entry fee as well as being much closer to where we live.

After letting Thyroid UK know, who were very thankful and appreciative for it, they offered to send us some free Thyroid UK vests to wear over our official Colour Rush T Shirts, as well as some temporary tattoos, wristbands and trolley keys, which was really kind of them.

We’re going to look so geared-up when we hit that start line!

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!

Thank you 🙂

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.
