Cycle a Summit for a Future


CYCLE A SUMMIT FOR A FUTURE

 

In July 2011, a group of cyclists dedicated to finding a cure for Duchenne muscular dystrophy will ride the highest paved road in North America.  Mt. Evans stands 14,265 feet above sea level in the heart of Colorado's Rocky Mountains and poses a challenge for even the most fit cyclists.  Our team will pedal for the summit - inspired by Christopher and the thousands of boys living with Duchenne, the most common fatal genetic disease affecting children. 

There is currently no cure for Duchenne, but there is hope.  For the first time in the history of this disease, there are clinical trials underway for treatments that have the potential to dramatically slow the progression of the disease.  And there are many other research initiatives underway, all pursuing promising advances.  However, research takes a long time, is extremely expensive and is often delayed due to lack of funding.  We are in a race against time, as each day, with each step, Christopher's muscles weaken.

We need your help - please sponsor our team as we Cycle a Summit for a Future!

Your donation, large or small, will fund critical research and will help researchers in their quest to turn good ideas into viable treatments and a cure.  Together, we can help to change the outcome for Christopher and thousands of boys like him.

100% of the money raised from this ride will be used to fund research for a cure for Duchenne muscular dystrophy.

Thank you for your support!
