Jesse's Journey Foundation

Defeat Duchenne. Change Lives.


Thanks to you – our donors and supporters, Jesse’s Journey has been the leading funder of Duchenne muscular dystrophy research in Canada for more than 25 years, granting $13.1 million to date.  Through your support, scientists and researchers from around the world have made great strides, working towards increasing the quality and longevity of life for people living with Duchenne. The pipeline of potential treatments has never been so full of promise, and we invite you to learn about this year’s research investments.

Our vision is a world free from the physical and emotional anguish of Duchenne muscular dystrophy. We know we can get there, and we know that research is the key. But we also know this: if research doesn’t get funded, it doesn’t happen and if we don’t advocate for access to treatments once they are discovered, our boys and young men will suffer. 

Thank you for your continued support. Together, we can defeat Duchenne.
