Here is the 2016 summer edition of Target MD. As always it comes to you with stories of the outstanding people who support Muscular Dystrophy UK. While we share some reflections after celebrating the 50th anniversary of Prince Philip’s involvement with MDUK at St James’ Palace in June, it’s also an opportunity to look ahead. Professor Dame Kay Davies does both, as she reflects on the progress in research and looks at the equally promising times ahead. There are also updates of amazing families doing great things to support the ongoing work of the charity, with their sights set firmly on a positive future for their children.
Charity ambassadors and elite athletes, Stephen McGuire and Ollie Hynd will represent Great Britain at the Rio Paralympics, in Boccia and swimming respectively. See what they have to say about sport and disability (page 7).
Meet some fantastic #TeamOrange members. See what motivated them to get involved in our events and challenges. Have a look at what’s coming up too – we’d love to have you join in and fundraise for us. Get in touch with our events teams; they’d love to welcome you. They always do a great job of supporting you too.
