The Cause

We’re raising money for NKH Research

About NKH

NKH (Nonketotic Hyperglycinemia) is a rare and terminal metabolic disorder in children. It’s rare, there are less than 40 kids living with NKH in the UK. At this point, there is no effective treatment. We’re raising funds to change that.

We’ve partnered with Joseph’s Goal (UK’s only NKH charity) to raise funds for the NKH Research done by Dr Nick Greene as part of UCL. He’s currently the world leader in NKH research, and we’re determined to give the research team the best shot at finding a cure for NKH.

About #TeamMikaere

Mikaere (or Kai, if it’s easier to pronounce) is a toddler with NKH. Because NKH is terminal and treatment options are limited every day is precious. His family are doing everything they can to give Mikaere the best quality of life they can.

His parents are friends with Sam (the Manager of Enterprise Business Reps at Sales Force), who introduced us to Yasmin within Ability Force. We were sure that collectively we could raise funds for NKH Research, and the fun run was born!
