Friends of mine Rob Quin and Julian Thompson both have Duchenne muscular dystrophy boys. Matt and James are pretty much wheelchair bound at very young ages due to this terrible muscle wasting disease.
There is NO CURE and I would love to raise as much money as possible for the FIGHT DUCHENNE FOUNDATION as I can so they can fund care, support, modifications and respite to all Duchenne kids and their families.
The ultimate goal of the Fight Duchenne Foundation is to build JAMES’ HOUSE on the Gold Coast for all Duchenne families to come and rest, relax and respite.
MY JOB : is to ride around Tasmania in April for these kids that aren’t lucky enough to be able to ride a bike. It will be about 800km of hilly terrain in a crazy week of pedalling.
Please donate what you can to help the cause of trying to reach my personal goal of $15,000.
As Thommo says “all we can do is fight the good fight”.
Thank You !!!
