 Tyson is 17 and suffers from an extremely rare condition called FOP or ‘Fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva’. To put it briefly, his muscle and joint tissue are slowly being overtaken by bone tissue, ie his muscles are turning to bone. As time progresses he is being caged further and further into his own body.  Many members have watched him go from walking with crutches and being able to stand up unassisted, to being wheelchair bound but still upper body able, to now extremely dependant to the point where he needs to use tongs to reach his mouth to eat, and requires extra assistance for the things a 17 year old really doesn’t want assistance with…

We have arranged 4 days of consecutive fitness challenges to help us raise money including an 8km swim, 800km on the assault bikes, a day of CrossFit workouts every hour on the hour, and a 51km run.

From our coach – Stu Cunningham

“I want to do something incredible for him. Not to raise money for research, he deserves something purely for him. He deserves something amazing. He deserves to go to the greatest pop culture convention in the world. He deserves to go to Comic-con in San Diego, USA. July 2018.”

Thursday 24th May – Day 2 of 4
