Grab your mountain bike or gravelbike and choose one of the three challenges of Duchenne Heroes: 7-day epic, 3-day Vosges or 3-day Ardennes. Whatever you decide: the routes are super, the experience unparalleled. No laps, but a spectacular route every day towards the finish in Well on the Maas or La Roche en Ardenne. You cycle as an individual participant or with your team, everything else is arranged! To experience this adventure, you have to work hard: train and raise money for the patients who struggle daily with the consequences of breaking down their muscles.
You may be disappointed here, but most participants collect more than the starting amount and discover that it is fun to go on the road for this. We will of course help you with tips and downloads. The gainings from Duchenne Heroes go to Duchenne Parent Project. With this money you support groundbreaking research into a medicine and treatments that offer children with Duchenne a better and longer life. And it works! The life expectancy of children with Duchenne has risen sharply in the last ten years!
