Organiser's Description

Sunday Funday!  Our 8th annual event will be held on a Sunday this year and we are so excited to have you join us!  Same place, same time, just on a Sunday - come one, come all!  Let's make this event even bigger than our last!  Our non-profit is still going strong because of YOUR support and this past year, we've been able to create a Canton High School soccer Nathan's Ninjas perseverance award, contribute to Nathan's Michigan Muscular Dystrophy Association summer camp, partner with the Plymouth Michigan Miracle League organization, and help with some of Nathan's medical needs and set up a bathroom overhaul project to start in a couple months!  Thank you SO much for all that you do to help Nathan and boys like him as well as make an impact on our community - we couldn't be ninjas without YOU! We are making a difference in the fight against Duchenne muscular dystrophy and in the lives of those impacted.
Duchenne muscular dystrophy is typically diagnosed between the ages of 2 and 6 and primarily affects boys. In fact, 99 percent of the almost 20,000 new cases each year are boys, meaning 1 boy out of every 3,500 will be diagnosed. Duchenne is a progressive muscle wasting disease so as other boys are getting stronger, Nathan and others like him are getting weaker.  Nathan has been using his wheelchair since last summer and is an amazing driver lol!  He is losing strength, but continues to shine his light and makes all those around him smile!  He will be entering high school next fall and with that comes many new challenges, but he is super excited and already feels like he'll run his new school!  He has spoken to the football coach and may help however he can next year and he's interested in auditioning for the high school radio program.  He always surprises and delights us!  Thank you for continuing to help him and other boys who face a similar situation - your support means the world to us and our original Ninja - Nathan.
Again, Ninjas will gather at Heritage Park in Canton and also offer a virtual experience for those who'd like to take advantage.  We are so excited for the opportunity to make a difference in the fight against Duchenne muscular dystrophy! Can't wait to see you there!!!
