Jesses Journey is a partnership of science and familiesdedicated to the discovery of treatment and cure of Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy and other genetic disorders, because parents should not outlive their children
- in 1995 John Davidson pushed his fifteen year old son, Jesse, across Ontario to raise 1.5 million dollars for research to find a cure for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy
- in 1998 John Davidson walked across Canada to raise another 2 million dollars
Tory and John Davidson (Jesse's Dad)
- in 2004 Tory Provenzano was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy and Jesses Journey became our Journey
because parents should not outlive their children
Natalie Girard-age 11, will be walking in the 33k Compass walk in London, Ontario on Friday, April 7, 2006 to help raise money and find a cure for her little cousin Tory, who has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.
