HELP US RAISE £15,000 FOR DUCHENNE MUSCULAR DYSTROPHY

You are invited to join us for an amazing evening of fundraising, entertainment and networking with industry clients and peers at Vectos’ charity quiz.

Mike Axon is undertaking an epic 1,500 km, 18,000 m, 9-day ride from London to Monaco. It includes iconic Alpine climbs and starting with Duchenne UK’s enormously successful DuchenneDASH, a fully supported, 24-hour ride from London to Paris, all to raise money for research and clinical trials that will yield treatments for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy - the most common fatal genetic disease diagnosed in childhood.

We expect more than 200 industry peers to be in attendance, so please use this fantastic fundraising and networking opportunity to invite your colleagues, clients and friends within the industry to a great night out and help us to raise as much money as possible for this very worthwhile cause.

Tickets include:

  • Sparkling wine welcome reception
  • Three course sit-down dinner
  • Wine, coffee, tea and petit fours
  • Participation in the quiz!
  • Organisation of a silent auction & raffle
  • Entrance to the after-party

The cost to attend is £1500 for a table of 10. Vectos will invoice you directly based on your ticket selection. This will allow more funds to be diverted to the charities.

About the charity

Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) is an incurable, muscle-wasting disease. It is the most common fatal genetic disease diagnosed in childhood and usually only affects boys, who are typically diagnosed before the age of 5. There is accelerating deterioration from birth, resulting in significant decrease in quality of life from age 7 to 8, wheelchair dependency by early teens, total dependency by mid- to late-teens and death in their early to mid-twenties from lung and heart failure.

Duchenne UK is a highly efficient (90% of money raised is spent on research and trials), ambitious and focused charity with a clear vision: to fund and accelerate treatments and a cure for DMD, and to beat this disease in a decade – to End Duchenne in Ten. The charity's approach is focused solely on advancing research and getting treatments into the clinic and to patients as quickly as possible. They actively seek out projects and possible therapies that could benefit this generation of patients. We invest globally in both basic science and translational research.
