Thyroid UK is a charitable company working primarily within the United Kingdom.
Thyroid UK provides information and resources to promote effective diagnosis and appropriate treatment for people with thyroid disorders in the UK.
The provision of quality information for people with both diagnosed and undiagnosed thyroid disorders is the primary concern of Thyroid UK.
We believe that people should be tested thoroughly to aid diagnosis and also be treated with the thyroid medication that improves their health and wellbeing.
We provide support to people with diagnosed an undiagnosed thyroid problems and related disorders via our website, online community, social media and our Information Pack and membership magazine Harmony.
This work would not be possible without the invaluable funds raised by events such as this.
Thyroid UK use Virgin Money Giving (https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/giving/) for sponsorship pages as, unlike some similar sites, they do not charge a monthly fee.
All runners will get a free Thyroid UK branded t-shirt.
With permission we also feature fundraisers on our website, social media pages and in our member magazine (you will receive a free copy of the issue you are in).
