FABRIC4X is a fund raising event to help raise money and awareness for ‘Fragile X Syndrome’. A collection of musicians - including The Invisible, Everything Everything, New Young Pony Club, Micachu and The 2 Bears amongst many more - have kindly agreed to waive their fees, and perform or DJ at the event which is being held at fabric, on 11th November 2010.
Fragile X Syndrome is the most common genetic form of inherited mental impairment. There are 1.4 million people affected by Fragile X Syndrome worldwide and 17.5 million people who carry the Fragile X Syndrome gene. Both males and females, from all races and ethnic groups are affected.
At the moment, Fragile X syndrome doesn’t have a high profile in the UK, but we can change that. It’s vital we give researchers the opportunity to learn more about Fragile X Syndrome and Autism, and how the symptoms can be minimised and, ultimately, reversed.
All proceeds raised from the event will help fund The University of Edinburgh’s major new centre for Fragile X Syndrome and Autism Research – this is the first UK Centre for Research into Fragile X Syndrome and related disorders.
