On February 22 Pete Miller will be taking time out from the heady world of corporate taxation to ride the fastest zip wire in the world.
Pete is taking on this intrepid challenge for Alex’s Wish, a Leicestershire-based charity which raises money to help young boys who have Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.
He will be soaring over Penrhyn Quarry in Wales, admiring the breath-taking views while potentially reaching speeds of over 100 mph. Alternatively, Pete will be screaming in abject terror, while potentially reaching speeds of over 100 mph! Only time will tell.
He is among several high-flying businesspeople to sign up for this exhilarating experience, instigated by Leicestershire Law Society. Their aim is to help Alex’s Wish raise its first £1 million this year, so all support is most welcome.
Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy is an aggressive form of Muscular Dystrophy affecting one in every 3,500 boys born and results in progressive muscle wasting. Every single muscle, including the heart and lungs, is destroyed due to a lack of protein. All money raised from the Charity Zip Wire will be going towards finding a cure for Duchenne.
Pete said: “A big thank you to everyone who has already pledged their support. All donations are very welcome, so please give what you can.”
