The walk represents a long and tough journey.
Duchenne is a progressive muscle wasting condition affecting 1:3500 boys and in rare cases 1:50 million girls.
Duchenne takes away a childs ability to walk, with them needing a wheelchair in their teens and slowly losing their arm strength. The heart and lungs are muscles too and Duchenne weakens these muscles. There is no cure and life expectancy is mid 20's. The Walk 4 Duchenne represents those who can no longer walk, in memory of those we have lost, and to give those living with Duchenne today hope, and those diagnosed tomorrow a real future.
