Toyota Oaks are the Toyota GB staff that organise and participate in a multiday cycle ride on an annual basis to raise funds for a worthwhile charity that means something to one of us or is close to our community.
2016 is our 5th year and 22 staff ably supported by 6 staff in the support cars, will be riding from our head office in Surrey to Le Mans, home of the famous 24hr race. The purpose is to raise funds for a locally based charity called Harrison's Fund.
Harrison's Fund has one goal - To get as much money into the hands of the world's best researchers who are working to find a cure for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.
It sounds like a horrible disease, and it is.
The facts about Duchenne are inescapable:
-Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy is 100% fatal
-Most kids with it die in their late teens/early 20's
-Most with it are usually in a wheelchair by the age of 12
-It leads to respiratory failure, heart failure and other debilitating orthopaedic complaints
Staff participating are:
Darren Morris, Jon Micklefield, Paul Marshall, Stuart Ferma, Dave Chase, Matt McDaniel, Gavin Edgerton, Mark Rote, Wendy Gillam, Mike Hutson, Marcus Brueton, Claire deCaen, Greg Culshaw, Nuno Bernardes, Tim Copland, David Bird, Abba Bako, James Humphries , Chris Jackson, John Ryan, Hannah Bartlett, Tom Taylor, Dave Mundy, John Hoole, Paul Denniss, Duncan Hilliard
