In January 2004, Michael McGrath made history by becoming the first and only person in the world with Muscular Dystrophy to reach the North and South Pole.The pole2pole project was the launch pad for the Muscle Help Foundation, which was established by Michael and his exploration partner Miles Peckham shortly after their extraordinary journey.

The Muscle Help Foundation has grown beyond recognition since and has delivered more than 50 unique experiences, known as Muscle Dreams, for children and young people suffering from muscular dystrophy and you can find out more by visiting
