May is "Defeat Duchenne Month" for Jesse's Journey, and today is the kick off with "Walk Across Canada Day".
A walk will be held in Springbank Gardens to mark the beginning of a month of fundraising for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.
Jesse's dad, John Davidson says this walk will feature a special guest who is taking on a huge task to raise money for this cause.
"One of those who will be there is a gentleman by the name of Bob Facca. His grandson Louie has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, the same as Jesse had, and Bob is starting off Monday morning in Owen Sound and Bob will cover 500 kilometres for us."
Bob is 62 year old. Davidson says he's proud of Bob for stepping up to the challenge.
"A London businessman who is not one to sit by and take things lightly, he intends to roll up his sleeves, get busy, and he's going to start making a difference, Monday morning, in Owen Sound".
Davidson encourages people to cheer on or walk with, Bob.
