Thanks for taking the time to visit Action4Archie.
Our younger son Archie was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy in 2008 at just 3 years old. Duchenne is a severe degenerative Muscle wasting Disease, which will unfortunately lead to paralysis and will significantly shorten his life.
The condition is now beginning to impact Archie’s daily life. As it is a degenerative disease, his condition will continue to worsen. At present there is no cure but treatment and support can help improve both the quality and length of life...Archie is known to us all as one very special little boy, if you're been lucky enough to meet him I'm sure you will agree!!
'Action4Archie' has been set up to raise much needed funds for the Research into Duchenne. We hold an annual Golf day with an Auction each year. I have run several Marathons and also completed the 100k London 2 Brighton Challenge all in aid of The Duchenne Research Breakthrough fund.
In 2012 we were made Ambassadors for the Duchenne Reserch Breakthrough Fund at Muscular Dystrophy. We have appeared on National T.V and Radio to gain awareness.
I know this won’t be the only fundraising request you receive but any donations you can spare will be much appreciated.
Thank you so much
