The voice of Batman in Spain, dubbing actor Claudio Serrano, also lends his voice to the campaign spot “HIV also saves lives” that the Conquistando Escalones Association presented with CASDA (Citizens Association Against AIDS of Castellón ). A video that has the participation of volunteers from both entities and with the selfless collaboration, as narrator, of Claudio Serrano, known for being the voice of Ben Affleck or characters like Otto Mann, from The Simpsons. The spot explains the links that unite the two entities, a symbiosis that crystallized with the creation of this solidarity action on the occasion of CASDA’s 25th anniversary.
Thus, the campaign launched by CASDA for the benefit of Conquistando Escalones aims to collect, until next December, during the commemoration of International AIDS Day, 25,000 euros, whereas the ideal figure to reach would be 100,000 euros since is the amount needed to promote the first clinical trial in humans of a possible treatment for the 1F/D2 limb-girdle muscular dystrophy suffered by some members of Conquistando Escalones and whose genetic mutation makes them immune to HIV, d ‘where advances in research can benefit millions of people around the world.
This spot will also be screened during the celebration of Rototom Sunsplash 2022 because, as announced by Conquistando Escalones, “HIV also saves lives” is the campaign chosen by the reggae festival to be held from August 16 to 22 in Benicàssim (Castellón) with the participation of thousands of people from all over the world as a beneficiary action of the collection of cups in solidarity with the event.

What is Conquering Steps?
The Conquering Steps Association is made up of people with a rare, genetic, hereditary and degenerative disease called Limb-girdle Muscular Dystrophy 1F/D2. A few years ago, it was discovered that the mutation that caused it made them immune to HIV.
The association finances the research of a large group of scientists who are looking for a cure for their disease and at the same time new treatments for HIV.
These investigations are carried out in a coordinated way in centers such as La Fe de Valencia, the Instituto Carlos III in Madrid, the University of Valencia, the University of Bologna and the IRCCS San Camillo in Venice, in collaboration with numerous other laboratories in countries such as the United Kingdom, France or Belgium among others.
