23before23 #8: Raising money for a good cause

Earlier this year I asked for donations to Endometriosis UK, but if you missed that, I basically did a mini series all about educating people who were clueless about the disease, and if you want to, you can have a lil read right here!

However, last week I walked with a great bunch of people in order to raise awareness for Crohn’s and Colitis. When I first started talking to my friend Amy we were discussing our chronic illnesses (casual, as you do), and she opened up to me about her ulcerative colitis, something that I had never heard of before! She opened my eyes to something new and seemingly terrifying, I got told what to do if she went into flare up and all the likes of that, however she wore it like a badge with such power, and I really admired that about her!

Last year a small group of us did the walk and it was great fun despite the rain (it was in Manchester though so what did we expect!), and we raised some money and awareness for Crohn’s and Colitis UK.

This year the team grew and we all pulled together and travelled to Manchester for the day to walk 5K in order to raise some awareness and money!

The money already raised is mind blowing, but there is never enough or a cap on these things, so if you wish to, any last minute sponsors and donations will always be greatly appreciated, and can be made via this link right here:
