Team story

[p]Hi, thanks for visiting our page. [/p][p]Its over 3 years ago since we found out Harry was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.[/p][p]Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy is a cruel muscle wasting disease. Harry who is now 5 years old is slowly loosing the ability to walk, climb and run. Eventually by the time he is 10 years old he will end up in a wheel chair. The disease continues to affect muscle strength and he will continue to loose his upper body function. Life expectency is early 20's. [/p][p]We are racing against time for a cure. Vital funds are needed if we are to make a meaningful breakthrough.[/p][p]This year myself (Harry's dad) and three others Phil Hoyle, Mark Baldwin and James Franklin will join other riders to raise £1 million pounds in the Duchenne Dash. The dash is a road bike ride from London to Paris in just 24 hours !!! Most rides of this distance are usually carried out over 3 days.[/p][p]The charity Duchenne UK embarked on a journey 5 years ago to end Duchenne in 10 years. This year's Dash is the halfway point to this mission and a landmark fundraising effort goes with it.[/p][p]This ride is going to hurt however the pain we suffer won't compare to the pain that duchenne has in store for Harry and other sufferers.[/p][p]Please help Harry and support me and my team raise as much money as we can and end Duchenne in 10 ! Lets be a part of making Harry have a brighter future and fulfil all of his hopes and dreams.[/p][p]Thank you[/p][p]Gareth, Mark, Phil and James [/p][p]Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor us and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. We really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.[/p][lt]p style="text-align: center;"[gt][lt]img src="" alt="" width="250" height="445" /[gt][/p]
