Hiking For Hugo

About the group

We are a team of friends and colleagues who are keen on fitness and the outdoors are doing the National 3 Peaks Challenge to raise money for a charity close to their heart. Florence's 2 year old son has Glycogen Storage Disease and the team are raising money for the GSD charity. The team will be traveling from East Midlands, South Wales and London.

Fundraising for Association of Glycogen Storage Disease

In May 2020 after weeks in hospital, countless blood tests and many meetings with an amazing multidisciplinary team at Leicester Royal Infirmary, Hugo Osborne (son of Florence Osborne) was diagnosed with Glycogen Storage Disease (GSD) type 3b at 13 months old. GSD type 3b is an 'ultra-rare' inherited metabolic disease of the liver. It is a lifelong condition that Hugo will need to manage carefully. The Association of Glycogen Storage Disease UK are a UK based charity who support those with GSD through diagnoses and provides up to date information from relevant medical professionals. The rarity of the disease means research is limited and funding is much needed for those who have the condition. The charity is small and deserves more recognition for the work they do.
