    Story

    Hi, I'm Oscar Gardner (9yr old son of Benjamin & Vicky Gardner) and in February 2016, my friend was diagnosed with a form of Muscular Dystrophy called Duchenne.

    Duchenne effects 1 in 3500 boys in the UK.

    It attacks the muscles and in most cases mobility is lost by the age of 10. It will eventually attack the lungs and heart which will lead to prematurely taking life from the late 20’s.

    Unfortunately, it has no cure. However, with your help good news is on the horizon.

    Research is underway for both enhanced therapy and a cure, but it’s vital these projects receive funding to continue and speed up the development.

    My contribution to the fundraising

    On Saturday 29th October, I am going to cycle 30km of the Viking Trail with my friend Elliott to raise money for Duchenne UK.

    We’ve never cycled this far before and with a little training from our dads we are aiming to complete the ride in under 2 hours.

    We want to raise as much money as we can to help find a cure for Connor so please sponsor us as we cycle the 30km Viking trail.

    Thank you :)
