A sea of green shoelaces from the Pavilion to Granny's Grave, that's Chris Gillin's birthday wish this year.
The almost 28 year-old is inviting the community to help make his wish come true by joining him for a walk on Sunday from 9am.
Inspired by the Muscular Dystrophy Australia annual Run, the MDA Warrnambool Walk will see participants dress in green laces or a touch of green and walk along the promenade from the Pavilion Cafe to Granny's Grave and back.
Having been a tireless campaigner for the cause for many years, Mr Gillin said it would make his day to see "everyone buy and wear a pair of green laces" this weekend.
"I just want people to come on the walk to spread more awareness in the community and raise more money to help future generations," he said.
"That will be good for my birthday."
Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy is a progressive muscle-wasting disease that affects more than 20,000 Australians.
Through his green laces campaign, stickers, loom bands and events, Mr Gillin has donated more than $80,000 to Save Our Sons Duchenne Foundation and Muscular Dystrophy Australia.
The Gillin family have invited all participants to join them for a drink to celebrate Chris' 28th birthday following the walk.
