Dystonia Around the World

After the amazing success of last year, we are super excited to bring back our ‘Dystonia Around The World’ Challenge. We can’t wait to see the different activities our fundraising champions take on to help us travel 25,000 virtual miles and raise £25,000. Launching at the beginning of August, going through ‘Dystonia Awareness Month’ in September, we will finish with our London Marathon runners bringing us back home to London on the 3rd October. You can clock up your miles in any way, will your write a story or run a distance? Get in some baking or create your own swimathon! This is the perfect chance for everyone to get involved and help raise funds for Dystonia UK. The way we work this out is that for every 10 minutes of activity it equates to 1 mile travelled. For this year we have a brand new website for our fabulous fundraisers to use and interact with! To take part just email fundraising@dystonia.org.uk and let us know you are interested.
