Nick and Kirsty Ohly

In July 2017, Nick and Kirsty received the heartbreaking news that both their sons, Owen (then 3 years old) and George (9 months), have Duchenne muscular dystrophy.  Nick is an orthopaedic surgeon and Kirsty is a research nurse, both working in Glasgow. They are determined to raise awareness and funds for research into a cure for this devastating disease, and have set up Project GO with these aims. With the support of friends and family, they have raised over £60,000 in under 9 months. They are particularly focused on supporting the development of the DMD Hub, to expand clinical trial capacity for boys throughout the UK.
