FAST UK are committed to raising £1m over the next 4 years in order to carry out a Natural History study with Oxford University to facilitate clinical trials in the UK. A secondary outcome of the study will be to set up a centre of excellence for AS in Oxford providing the care and medical needs that people suffering from AS require. There is currently no such facility available in the UK.
The FAST UK Cure Angelman Now (CAN) Campaign is a fundraising campaign to show support for Angelman syndrome research and to raise money for FAST UK, a nonprofit organisation that provides funding for Angelman syndrome research. The Fundraising Campaign is a challenge in which the top entrant that raises the most money (minimum amount to be raised to qualify – £5,000) for FAST UK will receive a prize* as described below. There will be a further ‘wild card’ prize** (no minimum amount required) in which one entrant will be randomly selected via Facebook Live to receive a prize as described below. A total of two prizes will be awarded.
The top prize consists of either Economy flights to Austin, Texas, USA for 2 people, 2 x Gala tickets and 3 nights stay at a hotel (details to be added closer to the event). The prize also includes a celebrity Meet and Greet with Colin Farrell. (Please note that if Colin is unable to attend the Gala then the Colin Meet & Greet will be exchanged for another celebrity Meet & Greet.)
Alternatively, if the winner has no affiliation to someone with Angelman Syndrome and would prefer not to attend the Gala, the prize on offer is Economy flights to NYC or Austin, TX for 2 people and £350 spending money.
