I am riding in the Tour Duchenne so i can help my fantastic little friend James "Brutha" Thompson. James is the son of a good friend of mine Julian Thompson. I smashed Jules when we were younger, since then we have been friends.
James suffer from a debilitating muscle wasting disease and has been dealt a cruel blow. Julian and James are trying to raise money to build a respite house for sufferers and their families to give much needed support and love to them through hard times.
I have previously been unable to assist the boys in raising any funds and would dearly love to help my little "Brutha's" cause.
Riding around Tassie with your tax deductable support will help family's like the Thompsons' deal with the unfathomable hand that they have been dealt.
Please give generously.
