Welcome to Trace's Page
As you already know Muscular Dystrophy effects my everday life. I have been in my chair since I was 2 years old. This year again, my mom recently accepted the challenge of participating in The Walk to Defeat Duchenne benefiting Jesse's Journey. I am not able to attend right now but my mom and hopefully some family and friends will be walking 8.25km through Springbank Park on Sunday, May 26th, 2019. The 8.25km course represents a quarter of the 33km John Davidson walked every single day of his journey across Canada in 1998/99 to raise awareness and research funds for Duchenne muscular dystrophy.
Jesse's Journey (The Foundation for Gene & Cell Therapy) is dedicated to funding the most promising research to find a cure for Duchenne muscular dystrophy. In Canada, one in every 5,000 boys suffer from Duchenne. Few of these young boys will survive beyond their mid-20's. For them, research to find a cure is the road to hope.
I am asking you to help by supporting my fundraising efforts with a donation. Your tax-deductible gift will make a difference in the lives of us boys and our families.
Any amount, great or small helps in the fight to #defeatduchenne. I greatly appreciate the support and keep checking my page and social media to follow my progress!
