Swiss Father of two, Julien Kurt, is a keen sportsman and an experienced marathon runner. He has participated in various marathons such as Berlin, New York and Paris and has taken part in numerous Triathlons and Iron man competitions. He is delighted to have been selected to run for the Haemochromatosis team in this year’s London race.

“It is with pride that I will run for the Haemochromatosis charity team. I hope not only to raise much needed funds for research and support for the charity but also to raise awareness of this condition. This genetic condition is not a rare condition but instead a rarely diagnosed one.”

Julien is very keen to help HUK spread the word about this condition to a much wider audience, to raise awareness but also to help HUK to educate GP’s in recognising the symptoms quicker and diagnose earlier. In doing this, patients will have a much better chance of gaining much needed treatment earlier and therefore saving lives!
