UNC Provides a Unique Opportunity for Dimmi to do Good

 

Excited to share with you that we’ve found the primary outlet for ALS Research funds that Dimmi will be proud to support with future profits from our shoe sales. Meet Nikolay V. Dokholyan, distinguished professor and researcher in the department of Biochemistry and Biophysics at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, NC. We had the pleasure of meeting Nikolay during a private tour of their Facility at UNC. It is their goal to discover new means of preventing and treating disease on the front line – specializing in ALS and it’s sister diseases.

“Thank you (Dimmi) so much for taking the time to visit with us yesterday!  We appreciate the opportunity to share with you all of the good work that we are doing in our ALS program at UNC.  As you can tell, Dr. Karam and Dr. Dokholyan are incredibly gifted physicians and scientists who care deeply about making a difference.” Leslie Nelson from UNC

What we found special about this facility, there is a huge advantage for direct support, as they are one of the very few locations that have both a research center, and hospital at the same site. What that means for the patients: close contact with the science team, and a tie between the researches and their mission. Funds raised in support go directly to their efforts, and working with the patients starting at their own facility in North Carolina.

Nikolay and his gifted team are deeply passionate about their work. And spend their time not only in research, but spreading the word about awareness to find new leaders in the medical community. We truly believe that their team, on the home front, is set to make leaps and bounds with discoveries that will rock the medical world. Their time should be focused on research and application. Join us to lift their burdens by spreading the word about their efforts, and raising money to progress their strides in discovering new paths to save lives for those suffering with ALS.

Support their team directly and learn more about their research and facility through their online donation link here: http://giving.unc.edu/gift/custom/index.htm?fndpic=345741&p=mfne

And when you’re shopping for shoes, choose Dimmi. 100% of our profits are donated to research in ALS, which we are proud to announce UNC as our primary recipient for future profits. http://www.dimmi.com/
