Grandpa Bob's 4,000 Walk for Louie
Grandpa Bob’s 4,000 Kilometre Walk for Louie
Bob Facca, or “Grandpa Bob” will be hitting the road in May - to walk 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.
His 2014 walk will start in May in Quebec City, heading west and covering approximately 20 kilometres a day. Bob will stop in many cities and towns, including Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto, London, Windsor, Parry Sound, Sudbury and Thunder Bay.
Bob says he has been training hard and 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."
On his walk through Quebec, Bob will be joined by Tom Cappelli, whose son Aidan suffers from Duchenne muscular dystrophy.
