Thanks for visiting our profile. This year, We are taking on Dystonia UK's epic #DystoniaAroundTheWorld challenge to raise awareness and funds for charity! 


We aim to cycle, run or walk 1000 miles between us to power the virtual trip from Dystonia UK's HQ in London around the world and back.

Dystonia is a neurological movement disorder that is estimated to affect at least 100,000 people in the UK. It presents with uncontrollable and sometimes painful muscle spasms triggered by incorrect signals from the brain. It is the 3rd most common movement disorder behind Parkinson’s and essential tremor yet many have never heard of it.

Dystonia UK is the only UK national charity dedicated to helping people affected by dystonia.

Help us put dystonia on the world map and change the lives of people who often feel alone and forgotten by taking on the #DystoniaAroundTheWorld challenge yourself or donating to our fundraising page.

Thank you so much for your support!
