Educating, gathering and solidifying the Canadian Duchenne community is an important facet of the Force Foundation’s mission, because Canadians afflicted with Duchenne muscular dystrophy (a rare disease) only number around 1,000 people and are scattered on a large territory. Our best option to reach them is to create a virtual meeting place on the web. We produced a web series entitled “Portrait of Duchenne”, made up of 5 short Web docs intended for webcasting. We also produced 3 dynamic interviews with scientists conducting cutting-edge research for Duchenne to spread hope within the community. Our team also created an end to end web site to host the web series.
Our goal was to reach the DMD community by inspiring them and propelling the stories efficiently on the web and social media.
