The gifts individuals give to Defeat Duchenne Canada hold profound meaning for our organization and the families we serve.

Regardless of what your budget is, you can make a difference for boys who need enhanced therapies, key information, advocacy and a sense of community.

Thank you for selflessly giving to support boys and young men who desperately need – and deserve – a better way forward. Your donation will bring hope and support to fight for our boys and young men living with Duchenne, whose journeys are more difficult than most.

Honour and in memoriam

A donation in memory of someone you love is a distinctive way to commemorate a family member or friend by giving a gift in their name. 

A donation in honour of someone is a meaningful way to celebrate a significant person in your life. Your gift could recognize a birthday, anniversary or a special friendship. You may also consider asking your loved ones to make a donation on your behalf as a community-centred alternative to a gift.

Expecting to receive several donations in honor or in memory of someone you love? Contact [email protected] to set up a donation page to direct your friends and family to.
