Defeat Duchenne Canada: Community Impact Report

June 5, 2023

We are excited to share with you our interactive reflection report highlighting the progress and achievements made in service to the Canadian Duchenne muscular dystrophy community over the past three years. This report is a testament to the love, dedication, and generosity of our donors, without whom none of this would be possible.

Through your visionary support, we have been able to make significant strides toward our shared vision: a future without Duchenne. In the past three years, we have:

  • Invested $4.4 million into research and clinical trials, resulting in the development of promising new treatments and therapies for boys and young men living with Duchenne muscular dystrophy.
  • Increased our family connections by 121%, providing them with the support, resources and assistance they need to navigate this challenging disease.
  • Advocated for policy changes and increased awareness of Duchenne, helping to improve the lives of those affected by this condition.
  • These achievements would not have been possible without the love and generosity of our donors. Your support has allowed us to make a real difference in the lives of Duchenne patients and their families, and for that, we are truly grateful.

As we reflect on the past three years, we are energized and inspired to continue our work ahead. We know that there is still much to be done, but with your continued support, we are confident that we can make a real difference in the lives of those affected by this devastating disease.

Thank you for your support and we hope you enjoy reading our report. If you have any questions, please contact us at [email protected].
