FUNDRAISE FOR US

IamGSD needs your help to sustain our assistance to people affected by Muscle GSD and their families. To this end we have a number of fundraising initiatives and events which anyone can take part in to support us.

INTERNATIONAL EVENTS

Our annual “Global Walking Week”

Each May we have an Global Walking Week during which participants can ask their friends and family to sponsor them per mile/km, or for the week. A great incentive to get your activity level up and to help support the work of IAMGSD at same time. Click here for details of the next event.

 

Future events

Watch out for our announcement of other opportunities in the future.

PLAN YOUR OWN EVENT...

We are very pleased to acknowledge the efforts of the many individuals who organize their own fundraising activities such as a sponsored walk, a coffee morning, a parachute jump, a head shave, a raffle, or maybe a yard sale to clear your attic in aid of IamGSD?

You can use our donations web page to make an on-line donation or send us the proceeds of your event. We will soon be introducing an easy way to promote your fundraising event to friends, and to then ask them to sponsor you in aid of your efforts for IamGSD. Whatever tickles your fancy – the ideas are endless.

...WE CAN HELP

We are always pleased to hear from anyone who wishes to plan their own fundraising in support of IamGSD. Whatever it is you would like to do, please let us know. We can offer help and advice, and perhaps with other things like official sponsor forms; maybe a t-shirt to wear on a sponsored walk, or some leaflets to hand out. Let us know how WE help YOU.

 

If your effort  is something particularly unusual it may be newsworthy. Maybe we can help with raising awareness through your local press or media.

What is IamGSD?

We are a patient-led international group encouraging efforts by research and medical professionals, national support groups and individual patients worldwide.

What is Muscle GSD?

Human bodies make glucose from carbohydrates. Excess glucose is stored as glycogen in our muscles and liver. Muscle glycogen storage disease is when our muscles cannot convert their glycogen back into glucose to power our muscles.
