On May 31 2021 Matt Straw will be running the Boston (Lincolnshire, UK) marathon to raise money for Muscular Dystrophy UK and George’s Giants.
George’s Giants is set up on behalf of Muscular Dystrophy UK and George, Matt and Louise Straw’s nephew. George was diagnosed with the life-limiting muscle-wasting condition Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy just before his 4th birthday. To date there is no cure.
Matt said “I am honoured to be one of George’s Giants and help raise money for Muscular Dystrophy UK and George. It is my first, and probably last, marathon so I will be giving it everything I can to raise as much as possible for a cause that means a lot to our family.”
