For some years already Jaap Mol cycles together with a team for Duchenne Heroes, the heavy bicycle tour of 700 km. However, this year he does it all by himself!
At this moment he is cycling the mountain bike tour through four countries within one week. Last Sunday, September 13th 2015, he started in Bure, Belgium. Subsequently he will cycle, together with another 330 Heroes, via Luxemburg to Germany and will finish in Nijmegen, the Netherlands, on September 19th2015.
The Duchenne Heroes work themselves into a sweat and through the mud for a week, in aid of children with Duchenne muscular dystrophy. This is a cruel muscular disease, where through a genetic defect the muscles slowly disintegrate.
Right now, Jaap Mol, co-sponsored by Cagemax, has been able to donate already €34,200.- for further research into this sickness!
Cagemax wishes Jaap the best of luck!
