My story

[p]Dear all,[/p][p]For the 6th year running I will be cycling to Paris in 24 hours with a bunch of 160 people, some of whom have barely rode a bike in their life, let alone done epic rides like this one![/p][p] We are doing as a big individual and collective challenge but mainly to raise funds to finance cutting edge research into finding ways to fight the Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy which is an horrendous disease that leaves young boys and their families with little hope. So, please donate and contribute with what you can![/p][p]Cari tutti,[/p][p]tra meno di un mese per la sesta volta, partiremo alla volta di Parigi per un viaggio di 300 chilometri in bici in meno di 24 ore. Siamo un gruppo di 160 persone ed alcuni dei partecipanti sono novizi delle due ruote e decisamente poco equipaggiati per il lungo viaggio verso Parigi. Lo facciamo per una sfida personale e collettiva ma soprattutto per raccogliere fondi per trovare una cura per la Distrofia di Duchenne, una malattia terribile che lascia senza speranze milioni di bambini e le loro famiglie. Quindi se potete aiutateci![/p][p][br][/p][p]Two families a week in the UK are told that their child has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD), a devastating muscle wasting disease that mainly affects boys.[/p][p] DMD is a desperately cruel disease. It's the most common genetic killer of children worldwide. Children will be totally paralysed by their teens and many won't live beyond their 20s. [/p][p]There is no treatment or cure. But thanks to recent breakthroughs, and with your help, we believe we can save them.[/p][p]Duchenne UK are an ambitious and highly focused charity, investing millions of pounds in research right now to bring treatments and a cure and to help this generation.[/p][p]So, Please help us to END DUCHENNE.[/p][p][br][/p]
