We are delighted…..and a little bit mad but extremely excited to participate in the 2017 Duchenne Dash. The Duchenne Dash is a gruelling 24 hour bike ride from London to Paris in which media rivals and friends take on a daunting challenge in aid of Duchenne UK. We are seeking a treatment for the biggest genetic killer of children, Duchenne muscular dystrophy, a muscle wasting disease that leads to paralysis and death in all cases. We need your support. Follow our journey, enjoy our pain, but please donate and help us make it worthwhile. In 2017 the event starts in London on Friday June 9th and ends in Paris, under the Eiffel Tower, on Saturday June 10th. You can sponsor the team here and help us reach our collective £1 million pound target: http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/team/connorscure
As Connor’s muscles weaken, Connor’s Dad, Matt and his team of ten strengthen; all of us are as determined as one another to raise as much money as possible. Whether it buys time, therapy or, more crucially, a cure, we all know that boys like Connor will stand a better chance with research. We are so very thankful to have such an amazing team of riders, including family and friends; our team includes Matt Crawford (Connor’s Dad), Tim Marston (Connor’s Uncle), Louisa Cronin (Matt’s cousin), Matt Colwil (Matt’s cousin), Ian Hollobon, Martin Tracey, Duncan Brown, Dan Vincent, David Rae and Steve Mason – all of whom are good friends of the family.
