Great North Run 2014

We hope you were all watching the Great North Run on Sunday 7th September, we had 23 runners taking part on behalf of DBA UK! Did you spot our running vests in the crowd?


Based on current figures, our runners have already paid in over £7000 for DBA UK!


Fundraising like this will continue to support meetings like the Family Weekend and also the Adult Meeting which are both rare opportunities to gather families and patients affected by DBA to learn from each other and listen to talks from experts from around the UK. This will also go towards research projects searching for greater understanding and hopefully a cure for DBA. We must express a huge thank you to all our fundraisers for your hard work.


If you have raised sponsorship but have not yet paid this in, please contact June Kynoch for details on how to do this.


We are hoping to secure more places for next year, but we need to register your interest now in order to do this, If you would like to take part in the Great North Run 2015 on behalf of DBA UK, we will cover your entry fee and would ideally like you to raise a minimum of £500 in sponsorship, however if this is not possible then aim to raise double the entry fee,  through our JustGiving page –


If you’re up to the challenge and would like to run next year then please send an email to –
