300 Mile Autumn – Hike for Duchenne VI” is in full swing. We had a special event leg over the Brooklyn Bridge on October 10th (2020). We have even also had several amazing legs in Uganda in east Africa, too!

We have just added a second special event spanning the Potomac River on the Maryland-Virginia border. Sounds fun, am I right???

I am stoked!!!!

2 Incredible Leading Participants

We have 2 incredible people who are meeting me there. Laura McRitchie and Musu Wheeler. I plan on helping you all get to know them better and better, just like I am. What a thrill getting to know each of them and their heart and dreams and aspirations.

Laura is a Duchenne parent like me and has been advocating for Duchenne for years!

Laura’s feet and a friend’s feet for Duchenne!

Musu founded Integrative Health Recreation and has a long term vision of viable healthcare for ALL Africans!

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.
