We are Simón and Tristan, two friends currently in third year of the BBA at ESADE Business School in Barcelona. 

On April 1st and 2nd, we will take part in the first Jailbreak Challenge organised by ESADE students, aiming to be the team which travels the furthest within 30 hours without spending a single euro. However, our greatest challenge - and that of all the other groups involved - is to take advantage of this initiative to raise awareness and raise funds for the fight against Juvenile Dermatomyositis (JDM).

What is Juvenile Dermatomyositis?

JDM is a rare and autoimmune disease affecting overnight about 4 in 1 million people each year, particularly children. Its primary symptoms include muscle weakness and skin rash, the body's immune system attacking its own cells and tissues. It usually begins during childhood years and affects girls twice as much as boys, but all age and ethnic groups are concerned.

Why is your help needed?

In this challenge, initiated by Empresa I Societat (ESADE’ students association addressing social issues), we are partnering up with Sant Joan de Déu (SJD) Barcelona Children’s Hospital SJD, which has long been known for its ability to make headway in the fight against paediatric diseases. Together, and only thanks to your donations, we can gather the necessary funds to find a cure to Juvenile Dermatomyositis.

We tend to think that the greatness of a cause is only measured in terms of the impact it has in numbers. That’s why we often here of those contributing to helping preserve the ecosystem but we rarely - if ever - find someone contributing to a specific cause like JDM. However, the truth is that rare diseases are a reality and only if we can help those 4 in 1 million, we will have brought life and happiness within our reach.

Help us make this possible. 

Thank you, 

Simón & Tristan
