Marathon – Verein für muskelkranke Kinder
A handful of mothers and fathers, grandmothers and grandfathers in 1997 established Marathon the association for children suffering from muscle disorders. ‘We chose the name Marathon because it is a very, very long fight will be against the disease. And we are therefore delighted to be very persistent,’ said Heinz Rathmann, a concerned grandfather.
Meanwhile, 49 families from all over Austria are part of their support group with more to follow.
Their goal is to give their children a good life.
