Elie and Emilio Walk to Save Our Sons

By Elie Eid

In less than a month I will be taking on one of Save Our Sons biggest challenges to date. I will be walking a grueling 351km pushing my son Emilio in his wheelchair from Albury all the way to Federation Square in Melbourne. Not only is this a test of strength and endurance - this symbolises a father’s fight to save his son. 

I want to  raise the awareness for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. I want to represent every parent looking after any sick child or disabled child. Every step we take is for every child who can no longer walk or is struggling to walk because of this cruel condition. 

This walk will be in memory of the kids we have lost, it will give hope to the kids of today and give our kids of tomorrow a real future. 

Proudly Sponsored by Chemist Warehouse our team target is $500,000 with the proceeds going directly towards three specific areas : New Research, Equipment such as Stand up Wheelchairs, Breathing and Coughing Machines and Mobile Scooters and we want to put a Clinical Nurse in every Main Children’s Hospital in every State Australia wide.

What an amazing cause. I know too well the power of family love and doing anything to honour a loved one. I wish there was more I could do to cure Emilio, but I do hope this small contribution helps you all on this mission. All my love, Kate x
