Team story

[p]Welcome to our Team LGDA fundraising page. We are taking part in the 2020 Virtual Million Dollar Bike Ride for Research[/p][p]An annual fundraising event that usually takes place in Philadelphia has had to make some changes due to the recent COVID-19 outbreak, and social distancing recommendations. The Million Dollar Bike Ride (MDBR) has gone VIRTUAL! [/p][p]As a virtual event, it gives everyone around the globe (patients, families and friends, and friends of friends) the opportunity to support the LGDA's biggest research fundraising event. Our global fundraising target is to reach [b]$30,000.[/b] [/p][p]If you would like to participate and join the Team LGDA fundraising page, email uk@lgdalliance-europe.org. Full event information can be found by visiting our website [url=http://www.alfiemilne.org.uk]www.alfiemilne.org.uk[/url] [/p][p]Choose your challenge and distance - walk, run or cycle[/p][p]Join the Team LGDA fundraising page or set up your own.[/p][p]Share your challenge with friends and family and start fundraising.[/p][p]Since 2015 and with the help of our supporters, this annual event has raised over $650,000 and funded 10 research projects directly related to GLA, KLA, GSD and CCLA. All donations will be matched by UPenn Orphan Disease Center, up to $30,000, to fund a new research grant for our diseases. 100% of the funds raised go towards these pilot grants, with no overhead taken out.[/p][p][i]LGDA-UK and it's international partners, supports patients and families affected by lymphangiomatosis (GLA), kaposiform lymphangiomatosis (KLA), Gorham's Disease (GSD), and central conducting lymphatic anomaly (CCLA). There is no cure, limited understanding of the diseases and only a few therapy drugs available to patients. Research is vital to give those affected by these ultra-rare diseases hope for a better future. [/i][/p][p]We appreciate that these are hard times for everyone. Every donation, however big or small, makes a difference. Thank you.[/p][p]Team LGDA[/p][p] [/p][p] [/p][p] [/p][p] [/p]
