This October, Duchenne UK will launch the UKs cosiest and most inclusive fundraising campaign: Duvet Days. This is a collective effort to help end Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD).

DMD is a progressive condition diagnosed in childhood. It causes all the muscles in the body to gradually weaken. There is currently no cure. But Duchenne UK and Duvet Days are bringing hope by funding research to advance treatments and care for everyone affected by the disease.

There are lots of ways to get involved, hosting Duvet Days from home, work, school or even from your local cinema. Ask for a donation to join the fun and then sit back and enjoy your time together, watching films and relaxing. Visit duchenneuk.org/duvet-days to download our fundraising pack for even more fundraising ideas.
