Do something ... dressed up

#BeFestive this year and do something dressed up for MDUK!

Add a colourful, festive touch to your work, workout, school run or shopping clothes and help MDUK to be here for every adult and child in the UK who lives with a muscle-wasting condition. There are loads of ways to do this, and you can do it for a day, a week, or – like Kelly Simpson from Northallerton – you could #BeFestive for a whole month.

Kelly has worn a Christmas jumper every day of December for the past seven years, raising more than £2,500 for MDUK. She started her annual tradition in 2014, when her friend, Susanne Driffield’s son, Joe, was diagnosed with Duchenne muscular dystrophy.

“The Christmas jumper challenge is my own unique way of supporting a very special little boy, Joe, and his family who I love with all my heart.”

So get into that festive jumper, put on some reindeer ears, don a festive hat, grab those angel wings or dress as an elf. #BeFestive like Kelly and do something dressed up for MDUK.
