Review photo 4622 — Elise Thomsen

The Kerr family is leaving Weyburn to move to Kelowna, where they are hoping to get their two sons into medical trials at the children’s hospital in Kelowna. From left are Andrew, Hayden, Cameron and Mandy Kerr. The boys inherited Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, which makes them progressively weaker and is fatal. The Kerrs and their in-laws, the Vandales, have been organizing a walk to raise awareness and funding for Duchenne for the past four years. The fifth and final Defeat Duchenne walk in Weyburn will be on Saturday, May 3 at Assiniboia Park Elementary School. Registration begins at 9:30 and the walk at 10.
