Team story

[p]Alex Hallam has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, a life-limiting devastating muscle wasting disease that affects 1 in every 3,500 boys born. It affects every single muscle making it difficult to walk and impossible to ride a bike and most boys will not live beyond their 20's. [/p][p]Alex is the face of the Alex's Wish charity and his mission is to conquer Duchenne once and for all![/p][p]Every single week two families will receive the same devastating news that their child has Duchenne. There is are no effective treatments or a cure at present. But with your support, we WILL get there.[/p][p]Duchenne is not going to stop Alex from taking part in the My Prudential Ride London event... [/p][p][b]He'll be joined by 5 friends* doing it their way on 15 wheels including a powered trike/wheelchair, skate board, bicycles and a static hand cycle cycling a total of 30km between them.[/b][/p][p][b]* Alex Hallam, Rich Copson, Rocco Lanza, Lorenzo Lanza, Siena Lanza and Isla Hallam[/b][/p][p][b]Rich Copson has Beckers Muscular Dystrophy, a milder form of Duchenne and is a great friend and inspiration to Alex and an ambassador of Alex's Wish - and together they are doing this challenge to inspire all those with disabilities to get out and take part![/b][/p][p]Because Rich is shielding at home due to having an underlining medical condition, he'll be taking part using his at home static hand cycle. We're not letting COVID or disability get in our way.[/p][p]Everyone else be riding around the Watermead Country Park 5 km cycle path on Wednesday, 12th August ahead of the My Prudential Ride London weekend and all to raise money to help every single child and young adult affected by Duchenne. This event will be done in line with social distancing rules.[/p][p]All money raised goes to an amazing charity [url=https://alexswish.co.uk/][b]Alex's Wish[/b][/url] - a registered charity based in the heart of the East Midlands - who is raising vital funds to conquer Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy for all. The money raised will be used to fund vital media research and clinical trials to bring about effective treatments and ultimately a cure for this devastating condition. [/p]
