Join in for Bellevue’s 2017 Run/Walk for Aidan
Aidan is the son of past Newport high school cross country and track coaches, Mitch and Mindy Leffler.
Mitch and Mindy have made a significant impact in Bellevue as both coaches and teachers, not to mention great friends. Their son Aidan is an amazing, smart and athletically passioned boy who is 13 years old and has Duchenne muscular dystrophy. This form of muscular dystrophy causes muscle degeneration and weakness in those that it affects. There is no treatment available to fight the disease.
Mounting Medical Costs
We’ve been participating in the run/walk this Bellevue community holds to benefit Aidan the last few years. All registration fees from the run/walk go to Aidan’s medical care and expenses, which are substantial.
Aidan’s muscles continue to atrophy. He’s currently on some therapies that are working well to keep him strong, and his family is passionate about finding effective treatment, which in turn is helping other families who are affected by Duchennes.
Having Fun While Giving Back
Aidan is an incredibly smart kid who loves soccer and is a light to others, wherever he goes. This race provides Cummins Chiropractic with a small way to try and give back. Our office participates by running the race and encourages our patients and community members to join in and help out!
