For the fourth time, Parent Project aps is organizing the Dolomites for Duchenne (DXD). Similar to the previous editions, Agiliz will be participating. Together with our colleagues, we will cycle and walk through the Dolomites in Italy for three days while raising money for charity.
Dolomiti for Duchenne (DXD) is a mountain bike event organized by Parent Project aps. It is a unique and exciting experience with one goal: to raise money to fund research on Duchenne syndrome.
The event is non-competitive, and it consists of three stages which will challenge every mountain biker.
This year the organization has also defined hiking trails for the first time. Participants from all over Europe will cycle or walk together on unique routes to explore the beautiful region of Val Pusteria in the Dolomites.
When you are born with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, your muscles slowly break down and you lose your strength over time. Children with this muscle disease lack a substance (the protein dystrophin) that ensures that the muscles remain firm. As a result, the muscles become less and less strong as the children get older.
Researchers are still eagerly looking for more knowledge to slow down and stop the breakdown of these children's muscles. Hence, Parent Project aps organizes various events to raise money.
At Agiliz, we strongly believe in helping and supporting each other. Both inside and outside our company. We encourage our colleagues to exercise together and to do something to support noble causes.
We support the Duchenne Parent Project by sponsoring the full fees for all the colleagues who take part in this event, whether they will be cycling or walking.
Because we have been participating in events like this for almost 10 years, cycling has become our company sport. By supporting good causes, our own team has become more active and connected.
