It does not take a great observer to realize that since the masks came into our lives, they have become an object that one does not know very well what to do when sitting down for a drink or reaching the pool or the beach.

The Conquering Steps Association is made up of those affected (all of them consanguineous) by a rare, genetic, hereditary and degenerative disease called Limb-girdle Muscular Dystrophy 1F. A few years ago it was discovered that the mutation that causes it makes them immune to HIV. The association supports the research of a large group of researchers who are looking for a cure for their condition and at the same time new treatments for HIV. These investigations are carried out in a coordinated manner in centers such as La Fe in Valencia, the Carlos III Institute in Madrid, the University of Valencia and the Vall d’Hebrón in Barcelona, in addition to other internationals in Italy, the United Kingdom and Finland. This is why, since the cancellation of events from the Association, we have worked on new ways of fundraising, promoting the sale of products through the online store in addition to the aforementioned Fernando Simón mugs, such as masks and especially “our craft and solidarity beer, ACE Beer”.
