We need your support to improve the lives of boys and young men living with Duchenne muscular dystrophy. Donations to Defeat Duchenne Canada not only empower clinical research and improve upon treatment options, but the meaningful resources and connections we create significantly enhance families’ abilities to cope with a Duchenne diagnosis.

If you are interested in supporting Defeat Duchenne Canada and the people we aim to serve, there are many opportunities for you to fundraise towards our shared goal of a life without the devastating effects of Duchenne. We invite you to learn more about each of these unique initiatives and get involved with whichever options best align with your interests.

Thank you for helping raise funds and awareness towards better outcomes for boys and young men with Duchenne. Your involvement with our organization will have profound tangible benefits for individuals who need advancements in care to improve their quality of life. Beyond that, your donations will build upon the far-reaching psychosocial and emotional advantages of our highly supportive and interconnected network of families.
