Max is a bright and funny six year old boy who loves to laugh. Born in Geelong, Australia, and now a resident of Hamilton, Ontario, he’s an active little guy who rides his trike to school and swims like a fish. His mummy and daddy can barely keep up with his wild imagination and constant games.
Max rarely stops talking and one of his favorite topics is all of the things he’s going to do when he’s older, like learn to skateboard, ski and play hockey and soccer with his friends. The problem is that Max has Duchenne muscular dystrophy, a terrible disease which doesn’t allow his muscles to develop like other kids, so unless we find a cure, he will never get a chance to do the things he dreams about doing in his future.
Max has loved zooming along on the back of his dad’s bike ever since he’s been old enough, so he is very excited about embarking on his third Max’s Big Ride which will be a terrific adventure for him.
