Harrison's fund

Harrison's Fund has one goal. To get as much money as possible into the hands of the world's best researchers, who are working to find a cure for Duchenne. It sounds like a horrible disease. And it is. Which is why we want to eradicate it. We're different from many other Duchenne charities out there because we're focusing on treatment rather than palliative care. And we work internationally. We invest in research that takes the science out from the lab, and into human clinical trials. So that, hopefully soon, more of those with Duchenne can grow into the strong men they're meant to be.

That’s why Link Up (UK) is creating interactive programmes for schools and community groups that break down the myths and stereotypes, show the benefits diversity has brought, and combat prejudice and discrimination.
