Since I joined MDUK as president, I’m always struck by the stories of so many of you who are dedicated to changing the landscape for people with muscular dystrophy. From the scientists making every day count in their search for new treatments and cures, to our passionate campaigners, committed volunteers and brilliant fundraisers.
We simply couldn’t do what we do without you. And that’s why it’s only fitting that our annual President’s Awards celebrate your amazing achievements.
For the first time ever, we want you to tell us who you think deserves an award for their time, care and commitment to make a difference to the lives of people living with a muscle-wasting condition.
The President’s Awards are a fantastic way to recognise people’s achievements and say a huge thank you. I hope you’ll take the time to fill in the form by 1 July and I can’t wait to hear about more of the outstanding things people are doing.
Gabby Logan, MDUK President
Nominations for the President’s Awards are now closed. The winners will be announced at our National Conference on Saturday 12 October 2019.
Throughout the UK supporters are raising money to fund world-class research, scientists are changing our understanding of muscle-wasting conditions and campaigners are driving change in their local communities. We want you to tell us who you think deserves recognition.
There are five award categories:
- Fundraiser of the Year
