Raising Money For Charity
Here at London Gynaecology we value giving back and focus on fundraising throughout the year. As a women’s health clinic, we are particularly focused on supporting charities that raise awareness about women’s health and support those affected by women’s health issues.
On June 9th, Mr Pisal will face his biggest challenge yet: the Comrades Ultra Marathon in South Africa. It’s the world’s oldest and largest ultra-marathon, at a massive 87km long with 2000m of elevation gain, starting in Durban and finishing in Pietermaritzburg. He has chosen to run for a cause very close to his heart, and will be raising money to support the charities Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust and Eve Appeal.
Mr Pisal says: “I have chosen to support Jo’s Trust and Eve Appeal. I am passionate about women’s health but sadly as a gynaecologist I see many patients who have been affected by a gynaecological cancer. Every day in the UK, 58 women are diagnosed with a gynaecological cancer and 21 will die. There is still a lot of work to do in raising the awareness, discovering new treatments and ultimately supporting women and their families through these diseases. These two charities are doing great work to bring gynaecological cancers to the forefront, onto the agenda and support groundbreaking research.”
As ever, Mr Pisal’s goal in completing this huge challenge is to raise as much money as possible for fantastic gynaecological cancer charities. If you would like to donate, please click here. Every penny counts – and we’re also pleased to confirm that London Gynaecology will also match any funds raised up to £5000.
The Whittington Hospital NHS Trust: In April 2018, Mr Pisal ran the London Marathon in aid of the Whittington Hospital, where he has practised for 16 years and is proud to be the gynaecological cancer lead. He raised over £14,000, which went towards new equipment for better endometrial cancer diagnosis.
Save the Children: In December 2017, the London Gynaecology team supported Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day campaign raising £150 for children across the globe.
