Failing Miserably

with No Comments

In four weeks I’ll be boarding a plane bound for London. I’ll visit a good friend when I arrive, pick up a bicycle from Pearson Cycles, get fit on the bike, go to sleep and start what I hope is the easy part of this story.

The Duchenne Dash – London to Paris in 24 hours – 300k. Training and riding – the easy part.

But it’s not all roses.

So as the body gets fit, the mind worries less knowing I’ve done all I can do to prepare for a 200 mile, 24 hour charity ride to benefit the  But it’s not just about the ride, it’s about raising funds to battle this terrible disease. And this is where I am failing them.

Don’t buy a print, make a donation.

I am asking you, my friends, relatives, and supporters of my cycling art for your support in this effort. It isn’t an easy ask. I know you have many other charities asking for donations and you can’t give to them all. I get it, I’m in the same place. But if you have just a few dollars it helps – it adds up. It makes a difference.

Please find a way to make a small contribution the work being done by the Duchenne UK. Their thankless devotion to saving lives depends greatly on your kindness and generosity.

I thank you. Duchenne UK thanks you. The parents of these children thank you. The children with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy thank you.
