Miles for Muscles, and raising awareness! Miles is a loveable lion, who was handmade by Sian, mum to Emmie, as a symbol of strength for families affected by Myotonic Dystrophy. There is a UK and a USA miles, and we are delighted to be able support the UK community by providing these cubs.
In the USA you can contact the facebook page
Lisa Payne has been working incredibly hard in sending Miles cubs out to children in the USA.
Cure DM are delighted to announce our new campaign.
Miles is our much loved Mascot for our families and children living with DM, and in the past we have sent him to visit families in need of support or having a celebration. He is getting a bit old now, and wants to have a bit of a rest so will reside in the CURE DM shop.
Also…… it seems he has a litter on the way!
Cure DM have the most amazing Lion-Midwife, Jacquie from Topstitch. Jacquie is Cure DM-Emma’a cousin, and so this is a very special cause to her. She is going to help the Miles Cubs be born!
We will be sending cubs out to the children in our community on an ongoing basis. Names will be pulled out of a ballot, and as the cubs are born they will be sent to their new homes.
This campaign is funded by our amazing supporters, we cannot do this without the ongoing fundraising and support we are receiving.
THANK YOU to everyone who is helping make this possible.
