Alex’s son, Harrison, was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystophy in 2011, a life limiting disease. By the time he’s a teenager Harrison will lose the ability to walk, and like all boys with Duchenne, he’ll die in his late teens or early twenties from heart failure. His aim is to raise funds to stop Duchenne or at least to find a way to slow it down.
In 2015 Alex had an idea to give Harrison the feeling of an amazing achievement, so he decided to enter Ironman. The award-winning feature documentary follows Alex’s attempt to complete a triathlon whilst carrying his disabled son for the entire course.
The screening of ‘The Challenge: My Iron Man Dad’ will be taking place at The Royal College of Physicians on the 24th May and will be followed by a live interview led by Jude Habib, a former BBC reporter and founder of sounddelivery.
This fundraising event for The Harrison Fund will be free-to-attend for charities
