Register now for Little Hercules Foundation's DuchenneDash, a 5K/10K DOG FRIENDLY walk/run. This year's event will take place at Glacier Ridge Metro Park in Plain City, Ohio.  Click here to read more about this beautiful park. Music, beautiful scenery, snacks, and free treats for our four-legged supporters! Proceeds will fund promising research aiming to cure Duchenne muscular dystrophy, a devasting neuromuscular disease affecting mostly boys.  Today, there is no cure, but with YOUR help, there can be one tomorrow.

In honor of Mother's Day, help us create a stunning visual exhibit on race day symbolizing the love between mother and son by sending us photos of you hugging your sons.  Duchenne eventually robs our children of the arm strength necessary to give a simple hug to those they love.  We need your help in demonstrating the power of a hug--something most people take for granted.  Send your photos to and we will print and display them on race day. Feel free to post them on the Duchenne Dash Facebook page using the hashtag #hugsfromoursons.

All participants will receive an event t-shirt (only guaranteed if registered by April 29). For safety reasons, please keep dogs on a leash for the entire event.

Every participant has the ability to create a team and fundraise!  Once your team reaches $1,000 raised, every member of your team will receive a prize pack including Little Hercules Foundation merchandise.

This event grows larger every year, and has become a fun community fundraiser for the whole family.  We can't wait to see you there!!
