One Month to Go Until The Colour Rush for Thyroid UK

The countdown is on! One month yesterday, I will have done the Colour Rush 5k course, with a group of friends, in order to raise money for Thyroid UK.

I’m a little nervous about it as my health is very up and down at the minute, but I will complete it. 

…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.

Thyroid UK are a great charity who do a lot to get as many people diagnosed and treated for thyroid problems, as possible. They support treating each individual as an individual, and are all for doctors working to find the best treatment for each person, as well as exploring the possibility of low vitamin levels and other, linked conditions. They conduct research and have been pushing for better results.

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.

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.
