Kerr’s Crew

Team photo

Thanks for visiting our team fundraising page. This is a team where people who are taking part in events to help us reach our goal will be listed. By linking up to our team, we are ensuring that all the money they raise, will go to funding research into Duchenne and not be allocated to other parts of the charity.

Kerr is our 7 year old son who was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy in December 2015. 

Duchenne is a progressive, life limiting muscle wasting condition. Kerrs muscles will gradually deteriorate and he will likely be fully wheelchair dependent by the age of 10-12. Beyond this, other muscles will deteriorate until eventually, his arms will give up and he will one day rely on a ventilator just to breathe. There are some drugs currently in clinical trial stages that we hope might slow the progression down and this is why we feel that funding research is the way to best help Kerr. Without the funding, these drugs would not be at the stage they are today and with continued support, we hope they will be available to Kerr soon.

All money raised by our teams will go to Muscular Dystrophy UK's Duchenne Research Breakthrough Fund. This is a fund that pays for vital research into the disease and we hope that in the not to distant future, an effective treatment and ultimately a cure wil be found.

You'll see our team fundraising target on the right. Your donation can really help us reach this goal.

Remember: Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never share them with anyone or send you unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. They'll make sure Gift Aid (an additional 25%) is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer, too. That means more money goes to the charity, faster, with JustGiving.
