Colby's Crusade

Date: May 19th 2018

On May 19th, Colby Audette and his family are hosting their sixth annual Coby's Crusade at Riverside Park.

Colby himself battles with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) and has tried for years to raise awareness concerning the rare disorder. Describing the aims of the event, Coby's mother Gloria Audette has claimed that "When we founded Colby’s Crusade, we first and foremost wanted to raise awareness about Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. Our second goal was to raise money to help Colby so that he could live as independently as possible for as long as possible. Our final goal was to hopefully get money to go towards finding a cure.” While last year's event featured an appearance by Iron Man and Ant Man, Gloria says that this year will likely feature Spinderman, Batman and Superman.

A great opportunity for spending time with family, the event will take place from 11 am. until 2 p.m. For more information on Colby's Crusade and DMD, visit the Daily Observer's article on the event
