Let’s ‘paint the Town orange’ this June and join Muscular Dystrophy UK’s Oxford Town and Gown 10km challenge, sporting glorious views along the River Cherwell and finishing in the University Parks- dubbed the ‘Best 10km in South East England’ by the running awards in 2019. Following last year’s cancellation of the event, we are pleased to announce that MDUK will host the run on the 27th of June 2021. To support MDUK’s Oxford Town and Gown 10km challenge, the MDUK Oxford Neuromuscular Centre is hosting a number of fundraising events and aims to smash our phenomenal fundraising total from 2019. Together with our colleagues, we look forward to a fun filled calendar of events.
