Kirklees Thyroid Support Group join us on Friday 28th October 2022 in Greenhead Park at 10am (meeting at the Greenhouse Cafe for 9:45am) and Stride for Thyroid to raise money for the British Thyroid Foundation! You can ask family and friends for sponsors or pay £5 to join in, which will be added to a group donation to the British Thyroid Foundation.

This is about raising awareness in Kirklees and also working alongside BTF supporting the vital work they do to support so many who live with thyroid health condition's.

We agree with BTF as stated below:

Up and down the country, millions of people live with a thyroid disorder. And yet many of us feel isolated by our condition.

Symptoms are not always immediately obvious. This can make it hard for those around us to understand just how much thyroid disorders can affect our physical and psychological health. Which can make it pretty lonely at times.

We want to change this. That’s why this October we’re asking the thyroid community to come together and take part in our 'Stride for Thyroid' sponsored walk. Will you help us raise awareness of thyroid conditions and put them firmly on the map?

And to help us be here for anyone living with a thyroid disorder, we’re asking that you get people to sponsor your stride. Every donation, large or small, will help us continue our work.
