Muscular Dystrophy is a devastating hereditary disease that sees the muscles in the body gradually waste away. At the moment there is no cure, but tireless research has found promise, and is currently running clinical trials for the most common type, Duchenne muscular dystrophy, which mainly affects boys.
To fund research such as this, the
id="ccblink" target="_blank">Muscular Dystrophy Campaign is organising a Town and Gown ten kilometre run in Cambridge, due to take place on the 12th October. Entry to the race is £20 with a pledge to raise at least £50 sponsorship.
It is a closed road run that starts from Victoria Avenue at 10am and finishes on Midsummer Common. Once you sign up you will be given an orange t-shirt for the event, buy you are also encouraged to run in fancy dress. If you are competitive, then you will also be pleased to hear it is a chip-timed race. Beat your friends, beat your best, and help beat MD.
