Duchenne UK
Duchenne UK is a lean, ambitious and highly focused charity with a clear vision: to fund and accelerate treatments and a cure for Duchenne muscular dystrophy. The charity has been formed by the coming together of Joining Jack and Duchenne Children's Trust, the two biggest funders of research in the UK in the last three years. We are committed to continuing to drive momentum to deliver treatments to help this generation of those with DMD.

****UPDATE*****

IM AFRAID I HAVE HAD TO WITHDRAW INJURED THIS YEAR. MY FOOT IS IN A CAST AND IM HOPING TO AVOID AN OPERATION. PLEASE DO SUPPORT THE OTHER RIDERS THOUGH - WE REALLY NEED YOUR HELP 

On June 5th I'm riding The Duchenne Dash (London to Paris in 24 hours) to help save the life of Eli Crossley and the thousands of boys like him with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. Our goal is to raise at least £500,000, all of which will go direct to medical research. Now in our third year of the ride I am older, heavier and more injured than ever. It will hurt. 

The Duchenne Children’s Trust (www.dc-trust.org) was set up two years ago by Emily and Nick Crossley, after their son was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, which is the most common fatal genetic disorder to affect boys. At the moment DMD is 100% fatal with no cure; most children die in their early 20s from heart or respiratory failure and every child ends up in a wheelchair by the age of 12-14. They cannot produce dystrophin, a protein necessary for muscle survival and, as a result, every skeletal muscle in the body deteriorates.

However scientists believe they are on the edge of finding a substantial treatment and possible cure for the disease.

The Duchenne Children’s Trust is currently funding several research projects   – all of which show real promise. And they’ve met with politicians, scientists, regulators, and pharmaceutical companies – to push the case for quicker access to drugs.
