Departing on 21st October, our CEO Mark Whitaker is part of a team of 15 cyclists traveling the 250km Camino on the Portuguese Way. All costs are being paid for by participants and all monies raised will go directly to the charity.
The team is aiming to raise well over €20,000 to fund a new lab for DNA testing, which will allow tests currently being sent to Finland to be done locally. This will enable medical teams to identify rare genetic disorders quickly.
We would be really grateful for any support you can give, no matter how small, and we are delighted to confirm that Johnson & Perrott will match all donations received.
