In 2015, Villarreal CF started to collaborate with ‘Conquistando Escalones’ (Conquering Steps). This collaboration consists of the club providing the association with all the media resources available to help them raise the maximum amount of money possible, subsequently helping them to achieve their objective of financing different methods of research to find a cure.
Conquistando Escalones is an association founded by people affected by Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy (LGMD-1F). In various investigations it has been discovered that the protein affected in the said disease is the same as that which reproduces HIV, with the result being that the mutation of this gene makes them immune to AIDS. For this reason, finding the cure for this muscular disease could also mean the end of HIV.
