My story

[p]In October 2018 the son of my friend, Daniel Wakeling, was diagnosed with Muscular Dystrophy. A muscle wasting disease that mainly affects young boys. [/p][p]Having a young boy myself, of similar age, this affected me more than I thought it would. [/p][p]Well, its all well and good being affected; but they are being proactive and raising money through their 'Following Felix' fund to one day find a cure! So I thought I'd try and assist. [/p][p]As such, in September, I shall be running the Great North Run, a half marathon, for Duchenne UK. [/p][p]As you can imagine this will be a torrid experience for me ... as I am fat, lazy, drink to much, eat beige and am all together pretty miserable when it comes to training. So please sponsor me and have a good laugh at my discomfort![/p][p]I promise you that your money couldn't be going to a worthier cause; don't worry, the Wakelings are nothing like me ... they really are the loveliest of people and deserve all the support in the world! So whatever you can give I would be very grateful![/p][p]Thanks in advance - Edward [/p][p]*********************************************************************[/p][p]Hello![/p][p]Welcome to the 'Following Felix' fundraising page![/p][p]This page has been set up by Felix's Mommy and Daddy, Charlotte and Daniel.[/p][p]Our son, Felix, was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy in October 2018, aged four years, one month. Duchenne is a severe muscle wasting condition, which is extremely rare.[/p][p]Approximately 2500 boys in the UK are living with the condition. There's currently no cure, however, the research that's been conducted over the past six years is extremely promising, but more money is needed to make further research possible, and to find the cure for Felix and all the other Children, living with this condition, as soon as possible. The more money raised, the more research can take place and get us closer to finding the cure.[/p]
