Gary Milton, who is 49 and lives in Waterlooville, is currently training for a 200 mile bike ride to raise money for Spica Warrior, the UK’s only developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH) dedicated charity.
Gary said, “Whilst many children, and adults, have DDH, there is a lack of awareness and support for the condition
that has debilitated one of my closest friends. There’s no doubt this is going to be a tough challenge but knowing
I’ll be making a difference to the lives of the families
Spica Warrior work with, will keep me going.
It would be brilliant to have the support of the local community behind me and I would love them to check out my Just Giving page to find out more.”
Natalie Trice, founder of Spica Warrior, added, “When my son was diagnosed with DDH I was shocked by the lack of information and support out there and decided to change this. We are delighted that Gary has decided to put his fitness to the test in the name of DDH and help us provide advice, information and support to families who may otherwise be alone. Fundraising events like this will allow us to work with medical professionals and ensure this life changing condition is on their radar and is picked up as early as possible so treatment can begin and suffering can be minimised”.
