FAST UK join the global 2022 Cure Angelman Now (CAN) Campaign for the second year running in order to raise much needed awareness as well as critical funds. FAST UK have committed to fund the Natural History Study with Oxford University for a further 3 years which in turn will facilitate clinical trials in the UK. FAST UK therefore continue to raise money for this incredibly worthwhile study.

We encourage anyone and everyone to take part, no matter the age, ability or association with Angelman Syndrome. Any sum of money raised is a huge achievement and it is celebrated and appreciated.

In the United States, research funded by FAST has identified a way to turn on a gene that is normally turned off in the brain. FAST US took this discovery and started its own biotechnology company to move this technology from the laboratory into human clinical trials. Trials were initiated in 2020 and early preliminary results suggest this therapeutic may effectively treat the symptoms of Angelman syndrome, and trials are underway in the UK already.

We have fabulous prizes on offer including a wild card prize which can be awarded to anyone that takes part.

The Fundraising Campaign is a challenge in which the entrant that raises the highest amount (minimum amount to be raised to qualify £5,000) for FAST UK will receive the top prize*, as described below. There will be a further wild card prize** (no minimum amount raised required) in which one entrant will be randomly selected to receive a prize as described below. A total of two prizes will be awarded.

*The top prize consists of 2 x Economy flights to Miami, 2 x Gala tickets and 3 nights stay at a hotel (details to be added closer to the event).

**The wild card prize will consist of 2 x Economy flights to Miami and £350 spending money.

Alternatively, if either winner (the top prize or wild card prize) has no affiliation to someone with Angelman Syndrome and would prefer not to attend the Gala, the prize on offer is Economy flights to Miami or NYC for 2 people and £350 spending money.

All entrants in the CAN campaign will receive a FAST hoodie and FAST water bottle.

So, help FAST UK because you CAN help us to reach our total goal of £250,000.
