Acies has supported the fund raising effort for Duchenne UK for a second year, which saw Ali Robertson take part in a team composed of anything from executives to veteran athletes, cycling from London to Monaco, from 9-16 June 2017. Ali has a special reason for this effort; his son Felix has Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD). Whilst Duchenne UK and other charities are helping make real progress in developing treatments for the illness, for Felix time is of the essence.

Duchenne UK has so far raised over 3.5 million since it was founded in 2011, with over 90% being spent on research and clinical trials, and is backed by the Scientific Advisory Board. You can find out more about them at their website: http://www.duchenneuk.org
