• Every penny raised by our members and supporters goes to helping AMEND to provide information and support to patients and families affected by MEN and related endocrine syndromes and tumours, and to fund research into the diseases.  We provide all this for free.

    If you are organising an event, let us know as we would love to share your news. We have free t-shirts or baseball caps available for all fundraisers.  Keep scrolling down for other resources.

    Our preferred fundraising platform is Total Giving which is a non-profit organisation with minimal charges for charities, unlike other platforms.  Scroll down for details and a link.

Upcoming Events

  • Fit to Fight on NET Cancer Day

    MEN1 member, Emma Williams, recently had surgery for a pancreatic neuroendocrine tumour. She recovered quicker than expected, amazing friends, family, her surgeon and, frankly, herself!  It’s not just luck – Studies have shown physical activity leads to significant reduction in all cause mortality. More specifically, physical activity improves mental health, reduces your chance of certain cancers, cardiovascular disease, falls and is helpful in diabetes, obesity and dementia. The list goes on.

    Emma started with the idea that she would run a marathon to raise money for AMEND and a local charity called Planets. She was amazed that most people she spoke to wanted to help and join in. This gave her the idea to run a virtual running event ranging from 5km to a marathon and to hold it on NET Cancer Day – 10th November.

    By organising this event she hopes to get people fitter and stronger, improving their own health to help prevent disease and aid recovery if they do become unwell. Even if you don’t feel able to run, entering and walking can have significant health benefits.

    Enter this virtual event to run or walk from 5km to a full marathon!

    50% of registration fees go to AMEND and you receive a free tshirt!

    Virtual challenges can help you make exercising into a habit. You are 4 times more likely to achieve your goal if you also join a Conqueror challenge, because it helps you setup a SMART fitness goal and it motivates you from start to finish.
