Support Rob Martin Murphy on his Tassie Tour Duchenne for the Fight Duchenne Foundation

TDTeamphoto-MtLofty.jpgIkon executive creative director Rob Martin Murphy is off to Tasmania on April 8th to ride over 700+km with over 8,000 metres of hill climbing, on behalf of the Fight Duchenne Foundation (FDF).

The FDF raises money for kids with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) and their families.

DMD is a muscle-wasting disease that affects 1 in 3500 boys. While it is genetic, it can also occur at conception. Either way, there is no cure. Except death, unfortunately.

Martin Murphy's best mate's son James (who is 13 this year) has DMD and that's why he rides.

This is the 5th time he is saddling up for the event known as the Tour Duchenne.
Rob_Martin-Murphy_066[1].jpgBeginning 10 years ago, Tour Duchenne has helped raise over $2.5 million for research, respite and care for DMD kids. While that's a good start, more funds are vital, especially with the ultimate goal to build James House - an oasis for DMD families in the Gold Coast hinterland.

No doubt you already support a lot of charities throughout the year. But if you do feel like sponsoring Martin Murphy (or DMD kids like James actually) follow this link.

All donations are tax deductible and can be made via Visa, Mastercard or Amex.

Says Martin Murphy (left): "Please do what you can and know that all the money goes to making life better for kids who can only dream of riding a bike. Also, if you'd like to share the donation link to your network and colleagues too, that would be amazing. Thanks."
