In 2016 the Myotubular Trust celebrated their 10th anniversary. To mark the occasion, the Trust hosted a 10 mile sponsored walk, taking in 10 of London’s iconic bridges, beginning with Tower Bridge and ending at Wandsworth Park. Below Anne Lennox from the Myotubular Tust writes about the event.
A 10 mile sponsored walk over 10 of London’s most iconic bridges. 147 people. Seven families with myotubular or centronuclear myopathy with us.
Walkers flew in from Germany, Australia, Holland and Italy … some just for 24 hours. And over £30,000 raised for research.
What a great, great day. We were so thankful for the company, support and fantastic fundraising of everyone who joined us.
A special thanks to the London black cab driver, Mr Tony O’Brien, wherever you are, for refusing to take payment for your fare when the photographers jumped in your cab.
