10 kilometres, 10 bridges London Hope Walk - Saturday 20th May 2017

We had a great turn out for the 10k, 10 Bridges London Hope Walk – we were joined by over 70 walkers, and four myotubular / centronuclear families.  It was a particularly special day and the weather was very kind to us.
 
Yet again, we have raised a wonderful amount in sponsorship, every penny of which will be used to fund world class research for myotubular and centronuclear myopathy. If you would still like to donate, it’s not too late - https://mydonate.bt.com/events/2017londonhopewalk
 
We are so grateful to Chrysoulla Kyprianou for taking the photos. They really are beautiful and capture the warmth of both the people and the weather.  

Chrysoulla now has her own photography business which we thoroughly recommend - https://www.chrysoulla.photography 
 
Special thanks also to those who had the picnic reading and waiting for us in Battersea Park - Katie Hyman, Andy Wilson-Smith and Lynn Alleway.

And finally, massive thanks to Bhawana and Kapil for surprising us at the finish line by bringing along their gorgeous one year old son, Arnabh, who has myotubular myopathy. What a treat for us all!

What a great, great day. Thank you to everyone who joined us on the day, and thank you the fantastic fundraising.

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!

8th London Hope Walk

Over 60 walkers took part in the eighth London Hope Walk along the Thames Towpath from Hampton Court to Wandsworth. We were delighted to be joined by some very young walkers and even one dog this year who took part with their parents for the final 5 miles from Barnes.

It was also fantastic to have so many teenagers with us from Alleyn’s School and also our team from Capgemini who have supported this event year in year out.

Our team of supporters who manned pit stops, erected a gazebo in the park and took photos were as wonderful as ever.

Thank you to everybody who supported this event and made it possible. And a massive thank you to whoever arranged the perfect weather!

WHY?

The first ever Myotubular Trust 20 mile Thames Walk was arranged by three of our wonderful supporters, Lizzie, Jo and Laura, in 2008, as they really wanted to make a difference.

‘We became involved when one of the girls in our NCT class, Anne Lennox, had a baby boy called Tom, born with Myotubular Myopathy. Sadly after bravely fighting the condition for almost 4 years Tom died in May 2007. It is great to think that we are doing something so positive to remember him by and to support other families with children with myotubular myopathy.’

Lizzie, Jo and Laura
