Will you ‘Stride for Thyroid’?

Join us this October to help put thyroid disorders on the map.

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. 

What it involves

Complete a sponsored walk of any distance at a location of your choice. Why not ask friends and family to join you to keep you motivated en route?

And to help connect the UK thyroid community, it would be great if you could:

  • Download one of our ‘Stride for Thyroid’ posters
  • Write on it why you’re taking part and your condition
  • Take a photo of yourself with your certificate on your walk.
  • Share it with us to put on our ‘UK thyroid community’ map helping others to know they’re not living alone with thyroid disease.

When and where?

Any time in October at a location of your choice, from your local park to your favourite beauty spot.

Support for you

To help you get started, we can offer you:

How will it make a difference?

With growing pressures on the NHS, demand for our services is higher than ever. But like many other charities, our costs are rising and donations are harder to come by.

Your fundraising means we can continue to offer free information and support to anyone who turns to us for help to manage their thyroid condition.

It also helps to pay for much-needed research into thyroid disease.

How do I get started?

  • Set a date and location
  • Fill out our fundraising form to register your walk, claim your free BTF T-shirt and get help setting up your fundraising platform
  • Return it to us by emailing [email protected] or post it back to the address given on the form and we will help you on your way!

    *If you are doing this as a group, we will supply free T-shirts for up to participants. Additional BTF T-shirts can be purchased from our online shop
