Muscular Dystrophy UK

We fund research into muscle-wasting to improve the lives of everyone affected.

Charity Registration No. 205395 (England and Wales) - SC039445 (Scotland)


Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

We are raising money for young kids that suffer from Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy which sadly is 100% fatal.

This condition urgently needs funds to be directed into global research for treatments to try and slow or halt the muscle deterioration.  

Affected boys lose their mobility aged just 10 - 12 years and their young lives are taken in their early 20's, usually due to heart and respiratory failure.

We are asking for donations and sponsors for a number of forth coming events :
