Coach to Cure MD
Tackle Duchenne
Dear Friends,

We are one month away from the fifth annual Coach To Cure MD and we need you to join our team!

Over the past four years, you have helped us reach the $1 million mark, as well as raise awareness about our fight to end Duchenne. This year, our partners at the AFCA and hundreds of coaches have already signed on to make 2012 another milestone year for this great event. The only thing we are missing is YOU! Getting involved has never been easier. Join the Coach To Cure MD team in one of three easy ways...

TEXT. TALK. TAILGATE.

TALK
Talking about Duchenne and spreading public awareness are critical in the fight to end Duchenne. Your story informs minds and changes hearts. This year we are asking parents across the country to get involved in our Talking Duchenne effort to promote Coach To Cure MD.

Create a Fundraising Page. We have come up with an easy way for anyone to spread the word and raise funds online, with a feature that lets you create your very own personalized online family fundraising page.

With template press releases, simple stadium announcements , creative social media elements, and other tools, Talking Duchenne and getting the word out about Coach To Cure MD is a great way to participate.
TAILGATE
Kids TrackHave a party! Whether it is a traditional tailgate party, a "watch party" at your home or a favorite local bar or restaurant, hosting a virtual tailgate party, or a high school event, gathering forces and turning September 29 (or whatever day you want to host!) into a Coach To Cure MD party day is not only beneficial to the fight to end Duchenne... it’s fun!

Did you know that many of your favorite restaurant chains have "give back" nights where a portion of each meal purchased during a set day and time is donated to a charity? Click here for a list of participating restaurants and more information on how to take advantage of this great opportunity to fundraise while you dine!

For five years, college football has embraced Coach To Cure MD. Each year the number of participating schools increases. We need you to join this effort so that our collective voice is as loud as possible and as many stories are told as possible, as we are once again given this incredible opportunity to take center stage.
