Sam's Day is named for the Killians' son Sam (7 years old), the youngest of four children, who was diagnosed with Duchenne in early 2005. Sam's Day was started in October of the same year by the Killian's financial advisor and close personal friend, Chris Messick, CFP of Northwestern Mutual. Chris, who recently received a community service award from Northwestern Mutual Foundation of $10,000 for his work on Sam's Day, is especially excited about this fifth anniversary year. "We really didn't know what to expect the first year we held Sam's Day. And now, here we are, five years later with an event that we are proud to say has increased awareness about Duchenne in the Dallas area and raised nearly $500,000 for research to help the thousands of amazing kids like Sam who are fighting this terrible disease."

Duchenne, the most common form of childhood muscular dystrophy, is a progressive and fatal muscle disorder affecting boys and young men that causes the loss of muscle function, wheelchair dependency and a decline in respiratory and cardiac function.

Sam's Day has become an annual destination for Dallas residents. It is a free, family-friendly event with bounce houses, a rock climbing wall, fast pitch m
