Are you up for a challenge?
Swim with the third edition of the SingelSwim Utrecht on Sunday, June 18th, 2017 Park Lepelenburg. Are you healthy, 16 years or older and not pregnant? If so, then you are qualified. Swim 1.2 or 2 km from the historic Utrecht Singel for charity for FSHD muscle disease, which is caused by an error in the DNA. In the Netherlands around 2,000 people suffer from FSHD muscle disease. They have the faulty gene switched ON. The research of Prof. Dr. Niels Geijsen from the Hubrecht Institute in Utrecht offers a hope of finding a drug to switch the faulty gene OFF.
