PLEDGE

We are getting our exercise on to raise money for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy and Africa again. So pledge for us, or perhaps better, hike with us, walk with us, power walk with us or run with us 300 miles (483 kilometers) during the autumn of 2020 for The Everett and Austin Project, Inc.

You can do it wherever you are, and you can do as much of the 300 miles as you want. You don’t even have to raise any money for us. No specific location required. Biking doesn’t count for raising funds in this event, but you can bike for Duchenne too if you want. Make up your own mileage and raise money for it too.

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.

Pledge to support a hiker, walker or runner today. You can pledge for yourself, or Tim or someone else you know that is doing Hike for Ducehnne V. You can make a pledge at the pledge form below, or just let your hiker know by message. And you can make your donation payment at any time, including even right now.

I'm a born-again christian, sold out to serving the needs of the less fortunate and in Sub-Saharan Africa. I founded The Everett and Austin Project in October 2018 to honor my 2 boys posthumously by helping people living in poverty going thru Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy and other rare diseases. My sons each died of Duchenne, Austin in 2012 at age 16 and Everett in 2017 at age 22.

    1. Thanks bro. I’m really looking forward to. There’s still much more to do there in Africa. Hopefully we can raise a good amount of funds from this.

      You said you are going to hike 100 miles over the 3 month span, right?
