Fundraise for us
All those who generously give up their time to support the Psoriasis Association by fundraising and raising awareness play a vital role in helping us to continue with our work.
The Psoriasis Association is the leading national charity working for people with psoriasis and all donations received help to sustain our work in supporting people affected by psoriasis, raising awareness of the condition and funding research projects.
We are reliant on donations to be able to continue with our work so, as you can imagine, the efforts of those who agree to raise funds on our behalf is very much appreciated.
We are truly amazed by people’s efforts and different ways they support us!
Whatever the event, we can provide you with promotional materials, sponsorship forms if required and a t-shirt or running vest. Every pound makes a difference and helps the Psoriasis Association support people with psoriasis, their families and carers.

Anna- Great North Run
Our fundraiser Anna will be taking on the Great North Run half marathon in 2021 to raise awareness of psoriasis.
Anna was diagnosed with the condition in 2017 when she was 20 years old and has tried a number of treatments to manage the condition including topical treatments, light therapy and methotrexate.
She said 'After around 5 weeks of taking the methotrexate, my psoriasis is now almost fully cleared. I am currently prescribed the drug for life in order to keep the condition at bay.
I’m hoping that me taking part in the Great North Run and sharing my story helps raise awareness of psoriasis and that the donations I receive can go to helping others suffering from the same illness I am.'
Nathan - Alton Towers 10K
On 13th November Nathan will be taking on the Alton Towers 10K to raise funds for the Psoriasis Association! Having quietly lived with psoriasis for 9 years Nathan has decided the time has come to speak up about the impact the condition has had on his life.

Daniel - London Marathon & Fred Whitton Challenge
Daniel will be running the 2021 London Marathon in support of the Psoriasis Association! Daniel was due to take part in the iconic run last year, but deferred his place due to COVID-19 restrictions, and is now busy training for the 3rd October event.
Not only that, but on 19th September Daniel will also be riding in the Fred Whitton Challenge cycling event, a 113 mile sportive around the Lake District. This one-day event is considered one of the most challenging cycling events in the UK and we are wishing Daniel the best of luck!
Daniel said, 'This cause is something that has been personally close to my heart from the age of 15. In the current crazy, mad world about pressures of looking great and dealing with the associated mental health issues that some find more difficult to manage than me, I’d like to raise awareness of this often confidence shattering skin condition which can severely impact a person’s self-esteem, especially teenagers!'

Sinead -Climbing Snowdon
On the 18th September Sinead will be setting off to climb Mount Snowdon, the highest mountain in England and Wales, alongside some of her dedicated friends and family. At 3,560 feet tall, conquering the mountain will certainly be a challenge!
Sinead, who has psoriatic arthritis said 'I am hoping to raise some much needed money for this charity, in the hope that one day there may be a cure!'
Good luck Sinead!
