Some will swim, some will walk. For cyclists however, there’s a 100k bike ride around Rice Lake to raise funds for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy research on Saturday August 24th.
About Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy
Duchenne MD is a fatal disease that only affects boys, symptoms usually appearing before age 6. Those affected are typically wheelchair-bound by age 10-12. Life expectancy is approximately 25 years and there is no cure. A club member, Sharon Lynn-Weese’s 15-year old nephew Tyler Lynn has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. Sharon will be participating in the 100k Ride and her nephew in the 6k Walk portion in his wheelchair.
For more information, to Register or to Pledge a Participant, visit Brian Connor’s Rice Lake Swim While no entry fee is required, a minimum of $25 funds raised per participant would be greatly appreciated.
