Richard Gamble, Managing Director at ENL, is cycling from London to Paris to help raise funds and awareness for a little known charity called DEBRA.
This is a national charity that works on behalf of people in the UK with the genetic skin blistering condition Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB).
EB is a very rare genetic condition in which the skin and internal body linings blister at the slightest knock or rub, causing painful, open wounds.
People who suffer from this condition can find support and information on this condition at DEBRA – www.debra.org.uk
The charity does wonderful work funding 10 specialist EB nurses and 3 Social Care Managers who help children, adults and families affected by this cruel condition.
Over the next three years DEBRA wishes to commit significant funds to further their aim of finding lasting and effective treatments for all types of the condition.
For this reason Richard has decided to take on a seriously tough challenge to help raise awareness and funds for this deserving cause.
The London-Paris cycle is on a par with events like the London and New York Marathons and was named by The Daily Telegraph as one of the world’s top 25 participation events. To ride The London-Paris you need to be in peak physical condition and prepared to be challenged, mentally and physically.
From 21-24 June 2012 participants will be cycling over 100miles a day.
