Grandpa Bob's 4,000 Walk for Louie
Bob Facca, or “Grandpa Bob” is on the road - walking 4,000 kilometres for Duchenne muscular dystrophy research. Grandpa Bob will be walking across Quebec and Ontario for his grandson Louie - and for all of the other boys with Duchenne. He has walked more than 3,000km so far and is getting close to the finish line.
His walk started May 12 in Quebec City, heading west and covering approximately 20 kilometres a day.
Bob has stopped in many cities and towns, including Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto, London, Windsor, Parry Sound, Sudbury and Thunder Bay. He will complete his walk in Winnipeg.
Bob says this is something he has to do, "because as close as the researchers are, they still need more money. The more funding they have, the more research they can do."
Through the province of Quebec, Grandpa Bob was joined by Tom Cappelli whose 16 year old son, Aidan, has Duchenne muscular dystrophy.
