Duchenne Dash 2020 – Event Cancellation

Following recent and rapid UK Government developments on the impact and risk of COVID-19, we regret to announce that the 8th Duchenne Dash will no longer be taking place in June and all subsequent training rides will be cancelled.

This is with great sadness; the Duchenne Dash is our much loved and much needed flagship event which we take great pride in. We would like to thank all our sponsors, crew, volunteers and riders for their valued support at this difficult time.

Message from Emily Crossley, Co-Founder and CEO of Duchenne UK:

For some of you, this will be the first year time in eight years, with the sun on your backs and courage in your hearts – that you won’t be cycling along the Champs Elysees in June – doing the most noble thing you can do with your free time – cycling 300km to raise money to help us save boys who need saving.

We are so grateful to you for your support, your commitment and your time.

In these momentous times, we have to work together to survive together which is why we want to keep the Dash family unit thriving, and invite new members to helps us keep fundraising and keep us at the very forefront of our fight against research.

Duchenne UK needs you now more than ever. To keep the Duchenne Dash spirit alive, we encourage people to keep cycling where safe and where possible. And please keep supporting us where you can. The fight against Duchenne muscular dystrophy doesn’t stop because of a virus.

The Duchenne Dash is a gruelling 24 hour bike ride from London to Paris in which our supporters take on an amazing challenge to help children with DMD.

We start in London and arrive triumphant, a day later, under the Eiffel Tower. The last 2 years our incredible team raised over ONE MILLION POUNDS!

The Dash is one of our signature events and this is its EIGHTH amazing year.
