Chasing Connors Cure
Connor is an 8 year old boy from Tonbridge. In February 2016, he was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD), a genetic disorder that causes progressive muscle degeneration and weakness due to alterations of a protein called dystrophin that helps keep muscle cells intact. In most cases, mobility is lost by the age of 10 and it will eventually attack the heart and lungs, leading to a drastically shortened life-expectancy.
Currently, there is no cure for DMD; but there is hope. Chasing Connor’s Cure has made it their mission to #EndDuchenne for good. They have raised over £200,000, helping fund 5 new research projects totalling more than £610,000.
Why we are supporting it
DMD is a vicious disease that has life-altering effects on the victim and their family. If we can help just one person, then we will have made a difference.
Being a local charity, Etainabl has decided to donate to Chasing Connor’s Cure as we want to give back to the community and take part in the events and fundraisers that the charity organises. We have sponsored the Team Connor 2021 London to Paris 24-hour bike ride; a physically taxing feat of endurance to show support for the charity.
How can you help?
Chasing Connor’s Cure has seen profound support so far but there is still lots of work to do. The charity hosts a wide array of events and sponsored activities that you can take part in, as well as a donation to help fund future research projects. By taking part or donating, you’re helping Connor and his family manage his misfortune and enjoy his life as best he can.
