Proposal: to cycle from London to Paris and then on to Monaco, covering 1,500 km’s and climbing over 20,000 m’s, in 9 days, raising money to find a cure for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD).


In December 2014 Felix, my now six-year-old son, was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, an incurable and fatal muscle wasting disease that kills more children than any other genetic condition. There is accelerating deterioration from birth, resulting in a significant decrease in quality of life by age 7 to 8, wheelchair dependency by early teens, total dependency by late teens and a lingering death in mid-twenties from lung failure and heart disease.
 

We’ve made huge progress since last year’s ride. The money we raised has helped fund a human trial of the cancer drug, Tamoxifen, which has shown real promise as a treatment for DMD. It’s also been used to help fund initiatives that will change the approval and reimbursement processes, which play such an important role in getting drugs into clinic.  But there is still a huge amount to be done: we need a combination of repurposed drugs like Tamoxifen if we’re going to alter the trajectory of the disease and there’s still no cure. To tackle both of these issues we need a lot more money, which is why we’re again cycling from London to Monaco, journeying 1,500 km’s and climbing a ridiculous 20,000 m’s in 9 days.

All the money raised will go to Duchenne UK. The charity was founded by Emily Crossley and Alex Johnson, both mothers of Duchenne boys. They’re unbelievably passionate and effective and almost all (90% plus) of the money they raise and receive funds research and trials. The charity really is transforming the future for children with this dreadful disease.

There is absolutely no time to waste if we’re going to save this generation of boys so please give as generously as you possibly can.

Thank you.
