Team story

[p]We are 4 friends, Ed, Tim, Woody and Andy. We are embarking on the task of cycling 200 miles from London to Paris in 24 Hours, although some of us have done it before, we can guarantee it does not get easier![/p][p]We are doing this task to raise money for children who have Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD), which is the most common fatal genetic disease diagnosed in childhood. The disease almost always affect boys, and they tend to be diagnosed before the age of 5. Duchenne muscular dystrophy is classified as a rare disease, and there are around 2,500 patients in the UK and an estimated 300,000 sufferers worldwide.[/p][p]Children born with Duchenne muscular dystrophy have a fault, known as a mutation, on their dystrophin gene, the longest gene in the body. The fault means that they cannot produce dystrophin, a protein that is vital for muscle strength and function. This lack of dystrophin results in a progressive deterioration of muscle strength and function.[/p][p]Please help us raise as much money as possible for this truly amazing cause, and help us change lives.[/p]
