PCOS AWARENESS month
Verity launched PCOS Awareness Week in November 2010 and we have not looked back since. Our Awareness Week has since become Awarness Month in line with our US counterparts and is an established event in our Charity calendar of events alongside the AGM etc. Everyone's support since 2010 has made this a popular annual event. The original idea was to simply raise awareness of PCOS and hopefully raise a little money so we can continue providing conferences, information and support. PCOS Awareness month is every September.
It’s pretty hard to understand PCOS unless you have it or know someone that does. Although there are literally millions of women in the UK who PCOS, it’s so easy to feel isolated or that no one else understands what you are going through. So here’s our chance to make a noise and support each other. Let’s all create a spirit of unity and togetherness for every woman who lives with PCOS.
Each year we do vary the format of the PCOS Awareness Month and all the information of the theme and activities will be on our website. However, the success of PCOS Awareness Month is down to many elements: the Trustees , our fantastic band of volunteers who organise and deliver a whole range of exciting activities and YOU. We need YOUR support, enthusiasm to plan events, take part, raise awareness and raise money so we can sustain all the good work we do.
There is plenty of choice of what you can do: join a planned activity within the Awareness Meek, hold your own local version or go independent and choose your own way. You can choose something that takes an hour, a day or the whole week. Whatever, you chose is fine. You will be raising the profile of PCOS and Verity whilst at the same time raising money so that Verity continues their work. Whatever and however you choose will make a massive difference.
