For a log of progress so far on “200 Mile July – Hike for Duchenne V,” check out Hike for Duchenne V – Log of Hikes.

PURPOSE

The goal of the Everett and Austin Project, Inc. is to improve the health-related quality of life for children with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy and other rare diseases, and increase educational opportunities for individuals and families in developing countries. Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy is a genetic disease that causes progressive muscle weakness, leading to disability, impaired function, and decreased ability to participate in daily activities.

Children in developing countries are often underserved, neglected, and/or abandoned by their parents. Some families live in remote areas with little to no access to medical and healthcare resources. Additionally, impoverished individuals and families struggle to meet their daily basic needs due to lack of much needed resources. The Everett and Austin Project seeks to educate, empower, and equip individuals with products, services, and skills to improve overall quality of life and sustainable living in developing countries.

AFRICAN LIVES MATTER

Across the world right now many, many people are demonstrating for “Black Lives Matter.” What courage and strength it takes to stand up for racial equality in the face of confounding opposition. By helping The Everett and Austin Project with this fundraiser called Hike for Duchenne – helping kids in Africa going through Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy – you will be fighting with us for people from the motherland. People in Africa matter too! BLACK LIVES MATTER!
