Factoid… there are 657 muscles in your body! In this blog, we’re shining a spotlight on the number 657. Did you know that in ‘angel numbers’, 657 is a sign of new beginnings, fresh opportunities and that the universe is working in your favour. At the Muscle Help Foundation charity, the number 657 means exactly this and a whole lot more!



“The charity’s mission is rooted in a number! It’s not just any number, it’s a number that drives us in our work every single day! The goal is to deliver 657 amazing Muscle Dream interventions across the UK for vulnerable children, young people, young adults and their families living with the muscle wasting disease Muscular Dystrophy. Put simply, that’s one life-changing, cherished moment-in-time for every muscle in the human body!”

To date, the charity has been able to help 527 young people achieve their Muscle Dreams. From providing an immersive driving experience over two days at Silverstone in a fleet of Porsche 911s to helping a young person receive their pilot wings, from adventures with Tesla to hanging out with movie icon Al Pacino, we’re in the business of catapulting young people like Leah below into a life of possibility.
