Fundraise your way

There’s so many ways you can have fun and raise money for Alex’s Wish.  Hold a coffee morning, arrange an event of your own, organise a pamper evening… the list is endless!

The money we received makes a huge difference to helping us end Duchenne for all.

  • £50 pays for scientific equipment for a day for crucial testing
  • £200 pays for a post doctoral researcher for a day to work on innovative new treatments
  • £800 pays for essential pre-clinical work per year to improve the effectiveness and safety of new treatments to move them into clinical trial

Your support powers our research. Have a look at our Fundraising Pack, which includes lots of ideas and tips so you can get started now and help save lives.

 

Take part in our events

Whether you just want to raise money to help us cure Duchenne, or to push yourself to achieve a life-long goal.  We have the perfect life-changing event for you.

From cycling to sky dives, taking part in our golf day or dressing up and coming along to our annual black-tie ball, there is something for everyone – why not have a look at our events.

 

Donate or give regularly

Set up a regularly monthly standing order with Alex’s Wish, or just give a one-off donation will help support our mission.

It’s a really quick and easy way to have an immediate impact and provide crucial funding into ground-breaking research.

Just £5 per month over a 12 month period will pay for scientific equipment for a day for crucial testing.

How your money makes a difference: £200 pays for a post doctoral researcher for a day to work on innovative new treatments.  £800 pays for essential pre-clinical work per year to prove the effectiveness and safety of new treatments to move them into clinical trial.
