    Darius: Your story is one of joy and love and hope. You have managed to inspire so many. You and your friends are the hope for the future, not just for people suffering from Duchenne’s but for our world. When such a group of young people can get together and accomplish what you and your Athen’s gang has done, I know the future of our world will be in good hands. I agree, Roll On - all of your.

While growing up i knew 2 brothers who had MD they did a lot of collecting for MD, we ( my sister and myself) would help. Since then they are both gone to heaven, and i no of no one who does anything they did, they would never let MD stop them from doing what they loved to do, PLEASE DON’T LET IT STOP YOU, KEEP LIVING AND BE STRONG. new freind MELISSA

    I watched your movie with kids in my 7th grade writing seminar. I love how even though you have barriers in your life, maybe more so than other people, you are so much happier than other people, and you just embrace life, letting go of the bad things and holding on to the good things. You have some good buddies and I want them to know how lucky they are to have their lives be touched in such a way by such an extraordinary and amazing person.

    I loved the video. Curious if any money directly goes to directly support Darius? I read he is from a low-income family and I am sure they have a lot of medical bills. Hope he and his family are also being taken care of in the midst of all of this. Keep up the good work.

    hey darius! I saw your movie it was amazing. You are an incredible person. You are so brave, if i was in a wheel chair i would not do the stuff you did. My favorite part of the movie was when you found out your were going on a road trip, and when you saw your pimped out wheel chair. KEEP ON ROLLING DARIUS!
