Each year millions
of people travel to Arizona to see the crown jewel of the North
American landscape - The Grand Canyon, and though
seeing is believing, you can do much more than look! You can experience
it on a personal level so close, you can feel the power radiate
from the ground beneath you, yet so distant that only your imagination
can capture its magical beauty. Best of all, you will be putting
this power and majesty to work to bring help and hope to those living
with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy and their families.
Here is a short video
from the 2012 Hike For Our Sons - Conquer The Canyon
Adventure in Grand Canyon.
There are times when trying to teach
others about Duchenne feels like an impossibility. The truth is,
for many families, even saying the word Duchenne is difficult. For
this reason, Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy has developed a clear
and informative eight-minute DVD, Turning
Passion Into Promise, that teaches about Duchenne,
the work that PPMD is doing, and how YOU can get involved.
Project Muscular Dystrophy and Conquer The Canyon
invite you to an adventure of a lifetime!
