Searching for a cure, Improving lives

Challenge Events


Whether you want to run, cycle, skydive, trek or jog, we have a challenge event to suit you. Check out our various UK and International events.

Whatever challenge you choose, or if you prefer to take on your own event, we at Action Duchenne will be there to support you all the way!

Every mile and hour you train, every £1 you raise will help find a cure for Duchenne muscular dystrophy through innovative research projects, while improving the lives of those affected by the condition.

If you are interested in getting involved in any challenge events for us then please contact our Events Fundraising Officer on 020 8556 9955 or via
