Silence Therapeutics6 Jul. 2021
The pharma company Silence Therapeutics organised an international event in June with their employees, their #MonthToMove, challenging the Silence team to get ‘moving’ for their partner patient groups, with a pound donated by Silence for every kilometre covered.
The team collectively covered 8,558km, meaning Silence will donate £8,558 spread across their seven core charity partners. They also raised a further £650 via their JustGiving page, bringing the current total to £9,208. This means they will be donating £1,315 to MDS UK.
We are super impressed and very grateful to all employees for rising so energetically to the challenge, and to Silence Therapeutics for the ongoing support and commitment to patient charities.
Silence Therapeutic aims at transforming the treatment of diseases through precision engineered medicines. Silence is advancing a new generation of medicines to potentially address the needs of patients who have limited or inadequate treatment options, MDS patients among them.
All the money raised will go to ensure that all patients and families receive the attention and information they need during those particularly difficult times – straight after diagnosis, at treatment changes, time of transplant or progression of the condition.
