With an impressive finish in the Dutch city of Eindhoven, the VMI Duchenne Heroes team completed its seven-day mountain bike tour recently.

VMI has raised more than 96,000 Euro through the Duchenne Heroes campaign

Each year, VMI participates in a challenging sporting event to raise money for charity. The VMI team was the largest team in the 12-year history of the Duchenne Heroes and made a substantial contribution to the over 1 million Euros that was raised with this year’s edition.

The Duchenne Heroes is seven days of mountain biking, 700 or 500 kilometres off road, through the mountainous Saarland and Vulkaaneifel regions of Germany and Luxembourg, over famous tracks in the Ardennes, Belgium, and finishing in Eindhoven in the Netherlands. The goal is to raise money for research to treat and cure Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.

Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy is a muscle disease. When you are born with Duchenne, your muscles slowly deteriorate and become weaker over time. Duchenne mostly affects boys, and at this moment there is no cure or no way of preventing this devastating disease. The money raised with Duchenne Heroes goes to the Duchenne Parent Project, a parent organisation dedicated to research and finding a cure for Duchenne.
