Max’s Big Ride is a not-for-profit organization created to fundraise, raise awareness and advocate for better outcomes for those living with Duchenne muscular dystrophy. It’s named after Duchenne muscular dystrophy patient Max Sedmihradsky.

In 2015, Max and his father, TRP student Andrew Sedmihradsky started riding their cargo bike 600 km between their home in Hamilton and Ottawa to draw much-needed attention to the fight against Duchenne muscular dystrophy and they’ve continued this ride every summer since. 


This June, a number of amazing TRP students and staff will be challenging themselves to ride 500 km over the month of June to raise awareness and funds to help improve outcomes for those living with Duchenne muscular dystrophy.

100% of any donations they collect will go to the Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy Research Fund at the University of Toronto to support important research at The Gunning Group Lab and PRiME Medicine.
