We know that the people who are most passionate about raising money to find treatments and a cure for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy are those who live with it every day.
That's why we at Duchenne UK want to help and support you - the friends and families of those living with DMD - with raising the money to accelerate treatments and to find a cure. It's a race against time to give those with DMD a different future, but by working together we are hopeful we can do just that.
Our Family and Friends Funds provide vital support to Duchenne UK, by fundraising for us and helping us to advocate to accelerate research. They share our ambition to fund the most promising research, no matter where it is in the world, and to do so with a vision to help bring that research out of the laboratory and into the clinic where it can help patients.
Please get in touch if you are interested in joining us as a Family and Friends Fund. CLICK HERE to download our Family and Friends Funds information leaflet.
