Andrew Elder, a Non-Executive Director on Masters Board, will be participating in the Duchenne Dash on 5th June 2015, in aid of The Duchenne Children’s Trust, cycling from London to Paris, a distance of over 200 miles, in 24 hours.
Andrew has been training hard for the event and is keen to raise awareness of this important cause.
Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy is a genetic condition causing muscle weakness. It starts in childhood and usually affects boys - about 1 in 3,500 boys in the UK are born with DMD. Currently there is no cure for DMD.
The Duchenne Children’s Trust is a UK based charity helping to fund research and early clinical trials to find treatments and eventually a cure for DMD. Their mission is to “End Duchenne in Ten”. Please click here for more information on the Duchenne Children's Trust.
