Established in 2016, Fight for Alfie formed as a result of Alfie's diagnosis. Colleen and Jamie, Alfie's parent, felt they needed to do all they could to save their child's live. The initial objectives of the charity was to raise awareness of Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy and fundraise the required funds for treatment for Alfie, to give him the fighting chance to survive this disease. We achieved this through organised events to fundraise and educate the public about Duchenne.
Through the years, the charity developed and gained a greater presence within the community. We opened our arms to help and support other families going through the same; and hence developed the key objective to promote and protect the physical and mental health of sufferers of Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy through the provision of financial assistance, support, education and practical advice
