Max’s big ride

5 year old, Max Sedmihradsky and his father are gearing up for another big bike ride.

In 2015, the pair raised over $55 thousand to fund research and to help find a cure for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.

This June they’re setting out once again and riding all the way from Ottawa to Hamilton.

Max was diagnosed with the fatal disease 3 years ago.

Max has recently been granted special access to a new drug that has been shown to slow the progression of the disease.

However, it’s not covered by insurance or Government funding. a three month supply costs the family
$70 thousand.

Because of that, this year people can chose to either to help pay for Max’s treatment, or donate to research.

Head over to their website if you would like more information or to help.
