Duchenne Memorial Wall
There is nothing more than the overwhelming feeling with excitement that more than 700 names was on a flag that is pounded into the mountain top of one of the most highest mountain in the world. Our sons would had been so honored to be there in person, but to have their names on a flag and honored with 1,000 fellow DMD boys and men. The 1,000 names is just a fraction of the thousands of boys who suffers from this disease. Remembering our son's listed under IN MEMORY OF is just a tiny fraction of the thousands of boys who has died from this devastating disease.
I am sure every parent who has managed to add their son's name on the flag is just as excited as I was Although the original plan was to leave the flag on Mt. Everest, many voted to bring it home to expand the flag and it will climb many more mountains to bring more awareness about Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.
In 2016, the same group, with a few adjustments of parents, climbed Mt. Whitney to help END DUCHENNE. At the end of September 2017 another group of parents will be returning to Mt. Everest.
