DNA decides your life.
That is a cold, hard fact. Over the next four years, we want to flex our muscles for those people who have lost or will lose the power to do so in the future. Because research is desperately needed.
This charity was chosen because one of the participants has a family member who suffers from the hereditary muscle disease HMSN. This condition affects the nerves and as a result the muscles become weaker and weaker. The cause of HMSN is yet unknown and the disease has not yet been cured. Scientific research into HMSN is mainly aimed at finding the cause and developing a drug.
