The Walk forMuscular Dystrophy is a fun event that the entire family can participate in, regardless of fitness level. The celebration includes activities for kids, snacks and refreshments. The Walk is fully accessible and participants can choose from a 1km or 5km route.

Your support will help those living with a neuromuscular disorder in your community like Alex Harold, who along with his family are this year's Durham Region Walk for Muscular Dystrophy Ambassadors. Alex's mom Janice describes "The Walk for Muscular Dystrophy is a chance to feel like we are accomplishing something… it brings people together and gives us a focus… We have no control over muscular dystrophy but this is a way to feel like we're doing something… to focus on something other than the tough stuff."

Make a difference by registering for the Durham Region Walk for Muscular Dystrophy and help raise funds to support those like Alex and his family living with a neuromuscular disorder in your community.
