The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
We are fundraising for our form charity which we hold dear to our hearts our charity is called Addisons disease.
Addisons diseases affects people of all ages and can be fatal if the right medication is not taken. Addison's disease – also known as primary adrenal insufficiency or hypoadrenalism – is a rare disorder of the adrenal glands.
The adrenal glands are 2 small glands that sit on top of the kidneys. They produce 2 essential hormones: cortisol and aldosterone.
The adrenal gland is damaged in Addison's disease, so it does not produce enough cortisol or aldosterone.
About 8,400 people in the UK have Addison's disease. It can affect people of any age, although it's most common between the ages of 30 and 50. It's also more common in women than men.
