Lend Us Some Muscle 2018 is back and bigger than ever, this May. It’s simple, register online, get out and do a walk, run, cycle, swim, surf or anything that gets the heart pumping, wearing your Lend Us Some Muscle tattoos and sharing it #LendUsSomeMuscle #LUSM2018 #fara Money raised from our Lend Us Some Muscle challenge will help fund our first clinical gene therapy trials in Australia - a giant step towards finding a cure for Friedreich Ataxia.
IMAGINE being a kid or a teenager and being told you have a degenerative muscle disease which will lead to a loss of muscle co-ordination, fatigue, vision impairment, hearing loss, slurred speech and then a serious heart condition - this is Friedreich Ataxia. 1 in every 30,000 affected. 1 in 90 are carriers. No treatment or cure.
