The Duchenne Dash 2016

This year’s annual Duchenne Dash has raised an incredible £400,000.

The Dash is Duchenne UK’s 300km bike ride from London to Paris, which takes place over 24 gruelling hours. This latest is the fourth event, in which around 100 riders took part, including Jon Snow and Dermot Murnaghan.

This year the Dash was joined by the Dash Max, the brainchild of Ali Robertson, head of our Patient Advisory Board, and father to Felix, who was diagnosed with DMD in 2015. He and his core team of 9 started the ride a week early in John O’Groats and rode all the way down the country to join the rest of the Dash at the London start, before continuing to Paris. Ali’s team raised over £130,000 of the total: an incredible achievement.

Please see our Facebook and Twitter pages for pictures and comments on the event. And watch our video below.

We at Duchenne UK would like to thank all the riders of the Dash, our volunteers, support team and also our incredibly generous sponsors
