May 1 marks the beginning of Defeat Duchenne Month! During the month of May, families, businesses, and schools across Canada raise funds and awareness for Duchenne muscular dystrophy research.
It’s easy to take part in Defeat Duchenne Month! Here are a few fundraising ideas:
- Gather a group of friends, family members, or co-workers and register for the Walk to Defeat Duchenne in London or the Virtual Walk-Run-Roll if you’re outside the Southwestern Ontario area
- Hold a silent auction or bake sale in your office
- Charge a toonie for dress-down day at work or at school
- Hold a garage sale with proceeds to Jesse’s Journey
- Sell Jesse’s Journey wristbands for $2
We’re here to help you plan your Defeat Duchenne Month event! To register your event click here or if you would like to discuss your event before you register, contact Solveig at firstname.lastname@example.org.
