11.09.10 | Toronto Walk for Muscular Dystrophy

There’s been alot of headway in treating genetic disorders like Cystic Fibrosis and Muscular Dystrophy over the past couple decades where people born with the conditions were overcome by the burdens early on in life.  Advances in medical understanding and patient care have brought about many more years of life for these people.

I was invited to attend and photograph Muscular Dystrophy Canada’s annual Toronto Walk for Muscular Dystrophy.  Many showed up for the charity event from all walks of life bringing stories of courage and determination.  The walk took participants from Cherry Beach into the heart of the Portlands and back out.
