400 Mile Spring – Hike for Duchenne Vii Log for Tim

By | April 22, 2021

For complete description of the hike and what it is all about plus all of the different ways to donate, please read 400 Mile Spring – Hike for Duchenne VII. Thank you!

Here is a log of the miles that I have covered so far according to Fitbit. In the first month of the event, I have covered half of the 400 mile goal! Wahooo!

I steadily made progress until I reached 400 miles on Memorial Day. That was a fitting tribute to my sons, don’t you think? Since I am doing The Everett and Austin Project as a memoriam to their name and honor. Using what I learned being their dad, helping to raise them as they battled Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.

Austin died from Duchenne in 2012 at age 16, Everett died from Duchenne in 2017 at age 22. They got great health care here in the US. Kids in Sub-Saharan Africa are not so lucky. They barely have any food.

So our organization is a way to “give back” to help those going through Duchenne and other rare diseases in developing countries, starting with the poorest part of the world – Sub-Saharan Africa.
