Duchenne UK has one clear aim – to end Duchenne, a devastating muscle-wasting disease.

As the leading Duchenne charity in the UK, we connect the best researchers with industry, the NHS and families to challenge every stage of drug development to make the incurable, curable.

Together, we will find treatments and cures for this generation of patients with Duchenne.

Please visit our website at www.duchenneuk.org.

Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) is the most common and severe form of Muscular Dystrophy. Diagnosed in childhood, it mainly affects boys. There is currently no cure.

There are lots of ways up can help us. Make a donation on this page, create your own event, or visit the campaigns and events sections to find out about our latest events - and then please join us.

Every year we run the The Duchenne Dash, our own annual exciting and exhausting 24-hour cycle ride from London to Paris, which over the past 8 years has raised more than £5,000,000!!

Please contact events@duchenneuk.org if you are interested in taking a place in any of these events, or want to find out more.

Thank you everyone for your continued and much-needed support.
