Thousands of Canadian families are in a race against time to find a cure for Duchenne muscular dystrophy, the most common fatal genetic disease diagnosed in childhood. Participate on Sunday, May 28, for the Virtual Walk to Defeat Duchenne.
When you join the Walk to Defeat Duchenne, you join the collective movement to help children and young adults live long, active lives. The dollars you raise are invested in the most promising Duchenne research around the world and mission-critical advocacy and family educational programs.
Participate on your own or with a team, in your local community or at home. Whether you’re completing 1km, 5km, or participating in our 33km Founder’s Challenge, make this event your own!
No matter how you choose to participate, your support will be recognized and celebrated. No matter where you live, with each step and fundraising dollar, we’re closer to reaching our vision: a future without Duchenne.
