Nikita, Natasha, Alannah and Alisha invite you to join them in raising awareness and funds for all types of muscular dystrophy.

We will be engaging in different events and challenges to raise funds including skydives, fashion shows and runs such as the Great North Run.

We want as many of our friends and family to be involved in helping the family fund to grow, in order to fulfill our mum's wish of a cure for Alannah, which is what Succeeding for Sandra is all about.

Net proceeds from this family's fundraising will be split 80/20 between MDUK's research and to help support the family with future welfare needs.

Our Fundraising page is open to all so if you feel like supporting this incredibly important cause feel free to join us.
