Team story

[p]On August 26th Alex Gibson, alongside Alun Thomas, Rob Weaver and JR will be attempting to break the Guinness World Record for the fastest time to travel the length of the Thames (128 miles) on a Pedalo![/p][p]The current record stands at 4 1/2 days but Alex and the team are looking to take a big chunk off this.[/p][p]They will be raising money for Challenging MND, a charity which looks to help those living with Motor Neurone Disease fulfil memorable challenges and events.[/p][p]Motor Neurone Disease is a rapidly progressing neurological disease that affects the brain and the spinal cord. It can leave people locked in a failing body, unable to move, talk, swallow and eventually breathe. Up to 5,000 adults are living with MND at any one time in the UK. The prognosis for MND is on average 2-3 years.[/p][p]Alex himself was diagnosed with MND in January in 2018 but still continues to push himself to his limits, which included last year scaling the 3 Peaks and cycling the 480 miles in-between all in one week, and just earlier this month walked a double marathon (52 miles) in one day!![/p][p]Please support Alex and the team in their quest to break the record and at the same time help many people living with MND.[/p][p]#InspiredByGibbo[/p]
