Start Stop

This October, challenge yourself to START a new challenge or STOP a bad habit to raise vital funds to help us to end Duchenne.

Go solo, buddy up with friends or get your whole school or workplace to take part. You can choose something that takes just a day, a week or lasts for the whole month of October.

So, what are you waiting for? Let's get started and help stop Duchenne

What you do is up to you! 

Start splashing. How far can you swim throughout October?

Stop talking. How long will your sponsored silence last?

Start selling. Put your unwanted items on eBay and donate the proceeds to Duchenne UK

Stop cursing. Put a coin in the jar every time you slip up in October

Alex's Start Stop challenge

“Two years ago I stopped eating sweets and crisps for a month and undertook a 30 day planking challenge. 

I was easily motivated to deal with the slight pain and discomfort I endured for a few minutes a day knowing that all Duchenne boys deal with so much worse ALL DAY! I actually lost weight and felt better and stronger, so really benefitted from the challenge! 

Think about something you could do, even if just for a day. Stop doing something that doesn’t add value and start something that does! Your fundraising will make a real difference to the Duchenne community.”
