Louie Facca appears to be an average seven-year-old boy, but he was diagnosed with a severe form of muscular dystrophy at the very young age of two. An inspiration to many, Louie’s grandpa, Bob Facca, has already walked 4,000 kilometres from Quebec City to Winnipeg to raise money in support of his grandson. But the support does not stop there. Louie’s love for hockey has sparked a fundraising event where he has become the mascot for finding a cure to Duchenne muscular dystrophy.
Knowing that Louie will never be able to play his favourite sport, the community rallied together to support this little guy through his journey by skating for a cure. In partnership with Blyth Academy, Total Package Hockey and the CCH Leap Program, the Brandon Prust Foundation was a proud supporter of the Laps for Louie Skate-A-Thon and Ironman Hockey Tournament.
