Walk way to raise ‘DMD’ awareness

HUNDREDS of people (pictured) joined an early morning walk around the Cooks River in Earlwood last Sunday to raise awareness for Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD).
The NSW Community Walk 4 Duchenne was followed by Sonday Funday with more than 1,000 people enjoying food, fun and activities to also raise funds to be used for trials to ultimately find a cure as well as providing essential equipment and services.
Campsie local and founder of Save Our Sons Duchenne Foundation, Elie Eid, whose son is diagnosed with DMD, said: “The Walk symbolises the long and tough journey that families have to endure when they have a child with Duchenne. It also represents our solidarity with those kids that can no longer walk or are no longer with us today.”
