mTBThe idea behind it is simple: having learned from their teachers about the existence of leukodystrophies, pupils take part in a sporting or cultural event organised in their school. Prior to the event, they look for sponsors. Money collected in this way is paid to ELA in order to help families and fund research. Besides the financial aspects, pupils taking part are expected to pass the ELA message around their group of friends in order to raise their awareness of the fight against leukodystrophies.
