I am fundraising for Alopecia UK because its a charity close to my heart. I have suffered from Alopecia Areata since the age of 15, and I know it can be a very difficult journey especially for those who are young to learn to adapt to their new lifestyle. I myself went through a tough time, with the lack of confidence in my physical appearance, however with the support of my family and friends I was able to gain the confidence and learn to love myself, which is upmost key.

Alopecia UK is a small charity working to improve the lives of those affected by alopecia and has aims around Support, Awareness and Research. Therefore I will be running 5K each week during September, as well as giving up chocolate to help fundraise donations of any amount!

Myself and Alopecia UK really appreciate your support, thank you so much! :) Payal Vaja
