The initial bjectives 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. they achieved this through organised events to fundraise and educate the public about Duchenne.

This event organised is to celebrate the charity's local Mount Everest Hero, Banjo Bannon from Newry Co.Down. as it has been 18years since he reached the summit of Everest.
