The Britcar Dunlop Endurance Championship will be supporting the Walking With Giants Foundation charity during the 2019 season. Britcar race-winner David Brise, who is partnering Alan Purbrick in the ALP Racing Saker, touched the hearts of the Britcar team late last season, when he highlighted the condition Microcephalic Primordial Dwarfism, to them, initiating this season’s support.
David explains what the charity is all about, "The walking With Giants Foundation are a voluntary non-profit making registered charity set up to support and enrich the lives of individuals and families from the UK and around the world who are affected by an incredibly rare genetic disorder called Microcephalic Primordial Dwarfism. This is a condition in which the growth of a child is severely restricted by their genetic coding and causes extreme but proportional small stature. There are of course many medical complications behind such a condition, so the individuals affected need as much help and support as possible in order to reach their full potential both physically and mentally. The charity not only gives the correct specialist medical advice and support to these individuals and their families, but also provides a welcoming and reassuring social network in order for families to communicate and share information. In addition to the above, they endeavour to eliminate all the stigma, mystery and any discrimination towards the disorder by promoting a positive attitude via their website, educational events and TV programs throughout the United Kingdom and the rest of the world.
The Walking with Giants is not Government Funded, we rely on public donations to help us achieve our aims and objectives."
Britcar managing director Claire Hedley adds, "We are delighted to be able give David a platform for this worthy charity, supporting those with this very rare condition."
