Our Plans for 2016

Happy New Year to all of you from all at the ROHHAD Association.

Massive Thank You to everyone of our supporters in 2015 and to all those who contributed.  It was a successful 1st year for the charity; which saw us become an SCIO official charity in May 2015, and go on to begin raising awareness and funds for medical research.

Our aim for 2016 is to continue working as hard to raise much needed awareness about ROHHAD as well as much needed funds for Medical Research.

We are all very excited at the ROHHAD Association to announce our plans for 2016 !!.

These will be kicked off with a very special #GOMADFORROHHAD challenge.  The video will be released very soon and Aaron and all at the ROHHAD Association can't wait to see you all become ROHHAD Superheroes by doing the challenge!!.  It is simple and a whole lot of fun we promise !

We have some amazing news regarding Research in the UK that we will be sharing with you all in coming weeks too...

B&M Fundraising HUGE SUCCESS

We are very happy to announce that the weekend Bag-Packing in B&M Dunbarton Store has raised a staggering £2150.30  (plus a couple of euros, a battery and a token for loch Lomond shores !!). This is a Fantastic amount and the ROHHAD Association is deeply grateful to all who worked hard packing bags and raising awareness for ROHHAD. We are also truly grateful to all those who donated; every last one of you have given us so much hope for the future and a Possible cure being found. We are so grateful to the B&M team at Dunbarton all of the staff were incredible and  helpful too, thanks for allowing us the opportunity to raise funds and also much needed awareness for ROHHAD. Finally our children fighting ROHHAD face the biggest of battles. The battle for their Lives being the biggest. Statistically it is one we have been told they are unlikely to win; however with all of you  fighting with them the odds will hopefully increase in their favour. Thank you all of you PLEASE continue to support us if you can and help us raise awareness and enough funds to help find a cure for the children affected. Continue to GoMADForROHHAD and be a ROHHAD Avenger !!
