Save Our Sons on Wednesday April 29th, 2015 will undertake their biggest challenge yet ‘Walk to Save Our Sons’ across 3 cities and 2 states.
(Newcastle -> Sydney -> Canberra)
All proceeds will help us raise much needed funds to find a cure for DMD (Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy) but also to simply raise awareness about this fatal condition a form of muscular dystrophy characterized by an aggressive muscle degeneration that leads to inability to walk and eventually death.
Save Our Sons founder Elie Eid will push his son Emilio in a wheelchair from Sydney all the way to Parliament House in Canberra. Not only is this a test of strength and endurance - this symbolises a father’s ﬁght to save his son. The wheelchair symbolises the harsh reality that families with children who suffer from DMD go through. The wheelchair is where the children with DMD end up and all the parents are left with when their children suffering this fatal disease pass away.
