We are honoured to have been selected as one of OFFICIAL RACE CHARITY’s for the 2014 OXFORD HALF MARATHON
Action Duchenne is a charity dedicated to finding a cure for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, a life limiting muscle wasting condition that affects around 2500 children, young people and adults in the UK today.
Children with Duchenne are likely to be wheelchair bound by the age of 12, have severely reduced upper body movement by the age of 20 and have a reduced life expectancy due to associated issues with the cardiac and respiratory systems.
Action Duchenne was set up in 2001 as a parent and patient led organisation with the aim of finding viable treatments or a cure for Duchenne. Since then we have funded research projects worldwide and a huge amount of progress has been made, with clinical trials now taking place with people with Duchenne.
