Duane Allen will take on the 4x4x48 challenge – running 4 miles every 4 hours for 48 hours – between April 12-14, 2024.

This will be Duane’s fourth time participating in the challenge and raising funds to defeat Duchenne in honour of his son James, who was diagnosed with Duchenne muscular dystrophy shortly after he was born in 2009.

As a family, Duane and Karen are optimistic that there will be a cure in James’ lifetime and encourage him to stay positive. “As a very active adult and hands-on Dad, it’s very difficult to watch your son face these physical challenges and not be able to keep up with his friends. I have found that the best approach is to help James face his challenges head-on and not let DMD slow him down in any respect,” Duane says.
