Defeat Duchenne. Change Lives.

HKSA Walk for Duchenne 2021

On February 6 and 7, 2021, the University of Ottawa Human Kinetics Students Association (HKSA) is calling all students and faculty members to walk in support of Duchenne muscular dystrophy.

For the past three years, this group has held an indoor volleyball tournament filled with spiking, fundraising and fun times. Due to COVID-19, they are asking you to participate in a different way by getting outside and going for a walk or run.

How can you participate?

  1. Share a photo or video of you on your walk
  2. Tag @uofohksa on Instagram
  3. Make a donation towards research for this fatal disease

“We can still make a significant contribution to this important cause! We recognize the importance of keeping these community events alive and we’re very excited to see many smiling faces out enjoying the great outdoors and supporting Jesse’s Journey again this year!” – Vanessa, Event Organizer
