This walk/run is meant to celebrate Thyroid Awareness Month.
Your thyroid gland is a butterfly shaped organ that sits at the base of your neck.
It controls many processes in the body such as energy, metabolism, heart rate, breathing, menstrual cycles, and body temperature.
1 in 8 women will experience an issue with their thyroid gland and 60% of individuals who have a thyroid disease have no idea that they have one (American Thyroid Association).
This race is virtual.
Proceeds from this race will be donated to autoimmune.org
