Global Genes®, a Rare Disease advocacy organization, has created an alliance of rare disease organizations to harness the power of collective impact. This alliance aims to provide patient organizations with an avenue for sharing best practices and lessons learned to drive better outcomes for the entire rare disease community. The MSUD Family Support Group has joined this alliance, giving us the opportunity to become stronger in a variety of areas including:
  • Marketing
  • Research
  • Networking
  • Public Policy
  • Family & Patient Support
  • Education
  • Resources
An immediate benefit of our membership in this organization is the ability to raise money for the MSUD Family Support Group. Global Genes® is hosting their 3rd Annual “Denim Dash” Virtual 5K. This virtual race occurs throughout the month of April and encourages rare disease supporters to run/walk/bike a 5k to raise money to support the rare disease community. New this year is the 50/50 split of net proceeds between Global Genes and Foundation Alliance Members. The MSUD Family Support Group has created a team and we encourage you to join! Help us spread awareness and raise money. Visit

With the support of the Global Genes® and the RARE Foundation Alliance, the MSUD Family Support Group looks forward to growing our impact and reach to ultimately improve the lives of people living with MSUD and their families. For more information about this organization, visit their website at


The MSUD Family Support Group is currently funding several research projects and we are proactively looking for researchers interested in developing new treatments or finding a cure for MSUD. Significant funding is necessary if we are to accomplish this goal.
