Dear Friends,

... Because we're serious about ending Duchenne.
Coach to Cure MD"Coach to Cure MD was started 5 years ago by my brother Brad Todd. He had a dream to bring Duchenne to college coaches in order to save my son's life. This year is my son Joel's 10th birthday and we have been fighting Duchenne for 7 years. We are going to have a huge party on Coach to Cure day and get serious about Ending Duchenne! So we fight for Joel, but we also fight for every person with Duchenne. I am also on the Coach to Cure MD team because I have worked on the national level with Coach to Cure and have seen the great generosity and compassionate spirit of the coaches. They are truly coaching to change and influence the lives of young men. "

... Because of the experience.
Coach to Cure MD"We joined the Coach to Cure MD team in September, 2008, a year after our son's diagnosis on September 11, 2007. Our first two years, we participated by hosting the game at our home with family and friends and at a local restaurant. Wil's grandfather also joined the cause via texting, phone calls, and face to face conversations which led to over $10,000 in donations. In 2011, Wil conducted the coin toss at the Azusa Pacific University Coach to Cure MD game in Azusa, CA (southern cal). Wil was also invited to join the Irvine High School Football team as an honorary member, wearing jersey #65. He has captured the hearts of all of the players, coaches, families, and fans."

... Because together, we are a powerhouse.
Coach to Cure MD"We are on the Coach to Cure MD team because we believe in it. The power of one person, one uncle to one child with Duchenne, created a movement so powerful that you can't turn on the TV during CTC weekend and NOT see a college team participating. We are on the team because together we are the powerhouse that will tackle Duchenne once and for all. We are on the team because we love our son and want nothing more than to see him one day out on that football field, running, catching and tackling like every other boy."
