Our Mission is to fund clinical research and trials for treatments that will help this generation of children and young adults living with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.

The charity is run by parents, for parents, and for every single child and young adult with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. Our goal, with your help, is to beat this disease in a decade: To End Duchenne in Ten. 

In 3 years, with very limited overheads, we have raised more than £3million. We are spending that money right now on three clinical trials and thirteen other research projects.


We fund clinical trials and research for medicines we hope will help this generation of children and young adults with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. We are funded 100% by our supporters. Some help us with a one-off donation, others make a monthly contribution. Some create one-off fundraising events for us, or join in established challenges on our behalf. We also run our own fundraising events too, such as the annual Duchenne Dash. Whatever you want to do, we are here to help you do it. Thank you so much.


Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy is the number one genetic killer of children and young people. There is no cure. But thanks to scientific breakthroughs in the last three decades there is now not just hope, but belief; Belief that treatments are now on the horizon. Thanks to your help we are funding the most promising research and clinical trials to help make those treatments a reality.
