Introducing the 2018 Surrey Walk Ambassador: Dylan Woods!


I was diagnosed when I was 4.5 years old.

Me and my family became supporters of Muscular Dystrophy Canada when I was diagnosed with Duchenne’s Muscular Dystrophy. We participated in the Walk at Jericho Beach in 2008 and then the Walk at Bear Creek Park in 2012. The Walk in Surrey was great, and my mom ran the 5 kilometers; I was so proud of her. We also raised quite a bit of money too.

I think the Walk is a great way to raise money and awareness about all neuromuscular diseases. There are so many causes these days that we need to work hard so that people know about our conditions. I would tell people that you will feel good supporting such an important cause. You w be improving the quality of life of others living with a neuromuscular disease. And I look forward to seeing families and friends come out and walk together for a good cause. It’s always an awesome family activity.

I wish other people understood the challenges of someone who is losing their strength and ability to walk. I haven’t walked since 2010 due to a fall and a broken leg. I couldn’t recover from a broken bone like other people can.

I am walking for myself and all of those living with and those who are affected by neuromuscular disease.
