Meet our Simcoe Region Walk for Muscular Dystrophy Ambassador

Sean Lawrence is hosting this event and will be there to greet you at the walk!

I was diagnosed with muscular dystrophy when I was 10 years old. My first year participating in the Walk for Muscular Dystrophy was in North Bay. Family friends got involved and invited us so we joined in. The following year we all (friends and family) participated in the Simcoe Region Walk and have been walking here ever since.

The Walk benefits the community at large because it’s a beacon to raise awareness for a good cause. The money is used to not just find a cure but to support individuals in their current situations with equipment and support.

The Walk offers a non-competitive & fun activity where the people affected by muscular dystrophy can participate. One of my favourite things about this event is getting together with family and friends and spending time outdoors. Walks are in different locations right across Canada. It’s a national event! Check out your local Walk, tell your friends, get involved, have fun!

I am walking for myself and anyone that does or could benefit from research, equipment and support that Muscular Dystrophy Canada provides.
