“Running on behalf of DMRF Canada has allowed me to ignite my inner passion and strength. It has allowed me to build a stronger connection with the Dystonia community, raise awareness and offer support and hope for those also diagnosed with dystonia."
Casey Kidson, DMRF Canada's Dystonia Ambassador, has had an incredible athletic journey. She continues to 'dyfy' dystonia by swimming, biking and running towards many achievements both athletes and non-competitors alike will admire in awe. On September 29th, 2019, she completed her first FULL Ironman in Chattanooga Tennessee, USA that consists of a 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike-ride, and a 26.2 mile run.
