The fight to defeat Duchenne muscular dystrophy starts with you!
One in every 5,000 boys worldwide is born with Duchenne, the most common fatal form of muscular dystrophy.
The disease is relentless. It slowly weakens the body’s muscles, deteriorating the function of vital organs and ultimately – shortening their life. Although there are medical treatments that may help slow its progression, there is currently no cure.
Save the date: Sunday, May 26, 2024, for the Walk to Defeat Duchenne – Canada’s largest fundraiser for Duchenne muscular dystrophy. Create a team or walk solo, choose a distance and location in your community and help raise funds to ensure our children and young adults can live long and active lives. With your help, we will reach more families, provide more care, fund more research and advocate for access to the latest treatments.
