“ Helping every child, teenager, and young adult affected with Duchenne muscular dystrophy is what we all aim for. Since over a decade, Blancpain has constantly supported the Association and renewed its commitment to this cause. Thanks to his faithful partner, the Association has been able to develop a long term vision and to fund research in order to find a treatment for the 250’000 people affected by this pathology.”
