Writing about web page http://www.justgiving.com/bobabbott
My Dad started his end to end ride on Wednesday and I got the first report from him yesterday.
It went along the lines of: “I have never been so wet in my entire life”
He does seem to be enjoying it so far anyhow. Bodes well for Sunday when I will join him for a day.
A quick reminder why he’s doing it – to raise money for the Muscular Dystrophy Campaign. A big thanks to everyone who has already donated – and if you fancy throwing a fiver to a good cause you can do so at http://www.justgiving.com/bobabbott
Muscular dystrophies are a collection of genetic muscle wasting conditions, some of which can be fatal in children. The Muscular Dystrophy Campaign is the leading registered UK charity working to combat these conditions by pioneering the search for treatments and cures. The charity also provides support and information regarding expert medical care.
My Uncle Billy had MD, and he never let it bother him even though it was a horrible condition. Unfortunately he died just before my father started the ride – so this is as much a celebration of his life as a fundraiser.
