Do something wonderful this April! Sign up to complete a challenge with the number 15, all for a good cause.
There are 18,000 people in the UK who have Marfan syndrome but only 3,000 are known to the Trust. That means there are 15,000 living with the syndrome unknown to us, with half of these living - potentially life-threateningly - undiagnosed. Help Us Find the Missing 15,000.
There are no entry fees, and when you sign up you'll receive a free t-shirt, and a fundraising pack to guide you through your campaign. Plus, if you raise £150 or more you'll receive an awesome Marfan Trust Certificate!
£150 will help us design leaflets on Foot problems in Marfan syndrome, Advice for children starting primary school and Stroke risks prevention and management."
