Tonbridge Swimming Club have partnered with Chasing Connors Cure as their charity for 2021.
As part of our fundraising efforts TSC and Chasing Connors Cure are combining to form a team at the Tonbridge Dragon Boat races on September 5th.
It will prove to be a day of hard work, team work and fun.
Our goals are to be a competitive team whilst raising awareness for the charities and much-needed funds.
"In February 2016, our beautiful son Connor was diagnosed with a form of Muscular Dystrophy called Duchenne.
Duchenne attacks the muscles and in most cases mobility is lost by the age of 10. It will eventually attack the lungs and heart which will lead to shortened life expectancy.
Unfortunately, today it has no cure. However, we are on a mission to #EndDuchenne by raising vital funds and awareness to accelerate finding a cure to save Connor and boys like him".
