Reclaim the day

Come Together to Celebrate World Duchenne Awareness day and Reclaim the Day with James

Stand for Duchenne Canada is pleased to invite you to the first-ever “Reclaim the Day” celebration on Saturday, September 7, 2019 – World Duchenne Awareness Day. Reclaim the Day is all about helping families reclaim the day of their child’s Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) diagnosis and celebrate what makes them so special. It is also an opportunity to raise awareness about DMD with the local community.

This year’s Reclaim the Day celebration will honour James Allen from Petawawa, Ontario. An avid Beatles fan and guest of honour, James has chosen to reclaim the day he was diagnosed with DMD with his very own Beatles-inspired concert. This exclusive show will take place at Mill Street Brew Pub Ottawa on Saturday, September 7 from 2:00-4:00 p.m. The event is graciously sponsored by PTC Therapeutics Inc.

We hope you’ll be able to attend this event. Join us in celebrating with James! Please RSVP by Tuesday, September 3.

If you have any questions about the event, or wish to get in touch, please contact Alyssa Acorn.
