How far would you be willing to go to make a difference for someone you love and for something that you believe in? And, what is one thing that you can do, to take that first step to just get started?
John Davidson is an incredible man who has had an extraordinary positive impact on people around the world. Some have benefited directly through the formation of the Jesse’s Journey organization and all of the research and proactive work that has been done to combat Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy thanks to John and his family. Countless others have been inspired and empowered by viewing John's example, the example of his son Jesse, his wife Sherene and all of the selfless volunteers who not only helped John make Jesse’s Journey into a living and breathing entity, but who continue to blaze the trail and keep the work going today.
In the summer of 1995, at the age of 49, John set out on an incredible mission to push Jesse, wheelchair-bound at 15 years old at the time, across the province of Ontario. That's 3339 km. That grueling test of endurance generated 1.5 million dollars for research.
Three years later, in 1998, John set out on an even more imposing adventure, spending 286 consecutive days on the road as he journeyed 8,300 km all the way across the entire country of Canada … on foot. That trip generated $2 million in grassroots donations made by Canadians across the country. And the movement has only grown from there.
The rest, I would prefer to let you hear straight from John as he tells an extraordinary story and shares so many valuable insights and life lessons that I really hope that you listen carefully, perhaps several times.
How far would you go?
