[p]Madly, I have decided to do it again. Duchenne UK is making amazing progress with the millions raised in the last few years and I have to try and raise more again. There simply isn't the time for these boys to take another year off. Their muscles are wasting, and there still isn't a cure. But it is possibly within sight. So please help me raise just a bit more for this amazing cause. It is a rare disease so the government and the drugs companies don't put cash into it. That's why we have to. You can find out more here : [/p][p]https://www.duchenneuk.org/Pages/FAQs/Category/what-is-duchenne[/p][p]The Duchenne Dash began 6 years ago when I decided to try to raise some money for my friend Emily's charity (In those days it was called The Duchenne Children's Trust). Together with a group of friends from work and elsewhere I cycled from London to Paris in 24 hours and between about 35 of us we raised almost £250K. It was the most improbable journey for me. I'm deeply unfit, don't enjoy exercise and everything hurts. But I trained and just about managed it. It was very painful but very rewarding. I did it again the next year with many more people and we raised a bit more. But then a combination of injury and illness stopped me doing it for two years. And laziness and (un)fitness stopped me again. Last year the Duchenne Dash raised an amazing £1 million. So now, perhaps rashly, I have decided at very short notice to try to do it again. I got back on the bike at the start of May and I haven't gone back to zero fitness so much as about minus 50. I'm much heavier. So to avoid dropping dead from a heart attack on the way I've decided to do my own, slightly slower, dash. I will start a bit earlier in the day than the main group and give myself a bit of a headstart, aiming to join up with them in France. If can't keep up I will again go at my own pace. But I will get there. [/p][p][br][/p]
