Walk to Save Our Sons arrives in Canberra
The 320km Walk to Save Our Sons finished today, 12 May 2015 at Parliament House in Canberra. Business Aspect is a proud sponsor of the Save Our Sons charity event which aims to raise money and awareness for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD).
The 12-day journey began at the Save Our Sons headquarters in Sydney and arrived at Parliament House in Canberra at 2pm today.
Business Aspect Canberra based consultant, Carsten Larsen, joined the walk into Canberra today and is extremely passionate about the cause. Carsten’s son suffers from DMD and he and his family work tirelessly to combat the condition.
Many celebrities have supported the charity over time including Alan Jones, Ray Hadley, Sam Kekovich, Angry Anderson, Jeff Fenech, Amanda Keller, Brendan Jones and many others.
Elie Eid, father of 10 year old DMD sufferer Emilio, and founder of the charity have raise $3.5million with the help of his team since 2008. Donations help fund clinical trials in Australia, the UK and USA and allow research into finding a cure for DMD. Elie’s goal is to raise another $3.5 million within the next two years to potentially bring the trial to Australia.
