Story

Thank you for visiting our team's Leap4Shiv fundraising Page.

We have joined together to raise vital funds and awareness to help find an effective treatment and cure for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) which is a life limiting muscle wasting condition.

Team Leap4Shiv is joining Muscular Dystrophy UK's (MDUK) Make Today Count Skydiving event in February 2016.

Our 14 team members are; Sejal Thakrar (Shiv's mummy), Sona Ghelani-Chauhan, Niralie Karia-Badiani, Neeta Lakhani, Janki Gadhia, Sonal Thakarshi, Radhika Masrani, Pujna Doshi, Ekta Jethwa, Meera Parmar, Shyam Gadhia, Victor Wong, Martin Haddon & Chandani Jethwa.

Jumping from a plane is no easy task; however, we have been inspired to do this jump for a 4 year old boy called Shiv who is suffering from this horrific condition, which causes children like Shiv to be full time wheelchair users by their early teens and causes premature death with the average life expectancy being only 18-25.

For the first time ever there is potential for treatments to be made available within the next few years but essential funding is needed for research, to help clinical trials and get these potential drugs to market as soon as possible which could help improve the quality of life and hopefully raise the life expectancy for Shiv and other children like him.

All your generous donations will go directly to the MDUK's Duchenne Research Breakthrough Fund through the Smile with Shiv campaign. This will help Shiv and other children like him so please show your support for the Leap4Shiv team and give generously.

Thank You
