Build your own marathon!

For our 2022 Awareness Month, were challenging you to take on your own marathon - whatever that may look like.

As those who are affected by sarcoidosis will know, the disease is not a one size fits all. Sarcoidosis can affect any organ in the body, and its symptoms are wide ranging. Not everyone will enjoy taking on the same type of challenge, so that's why this April were giving you the chance to create your own fundraiser challenge! You get to decide what a marathon looks like for you, and do it your way.

Last year in our Awareness Month Juliet Coffer showed us that with a bit of determination, anyone can take on their own challenge. For her, this was walking an extra 3000 meters in 30 days, all while connected to her oxygen tank. This year, were encouraging you to follow in Juliet's footsteps and Build Your Own Marathon.

Here's just some ideas for inspiration, but we want you to choose a marathon that will suit you!

- Are you a chatterbox? Complete a sponsored silence for a day

- Want to get active but not sure where to start? See how much further you could walk in a month by going up and down your stairs once more every day

- Are you creative? Could you make something and work on it each day in April?

- Do you have a unique hobby? Set yourself a milestone you could reach whilst doing it and get sponsored

Whatever challenge you choose to take on, you'll be helping to make a huge impact for the lives of people affected by sarcoidosis!

Of course, we are here to help every step along the way. If you have any further questions, please get in touch with our Marketing & Fundraising Executive at charlene@sarcoidosisuk.org
