Find a Local PPMD Connect Group

PPMD’s Connect is the official family outreach program of Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy. Led by volunteer parents and grandparents, PPMD’s Connect groups serve as regional points of contact for families and individuals affected by Duchenne and Becker.

PPMD’s Connect Goals

  • Family Mentoring: To connect families with local resources, help them better navigate the diagnosis of Duchenne or Becker, and provide ways to connect with other families both in-person and online.
  • Outreach Opportunities: To participate in national awareness and advocacy campaigns.
  • Fundraising Opportunities: From do-it-yourself events to endurance races, there’s a way for everyone to make a difference and support PPMD’s mission.

PPMD’s Connect program launched in 2008. Since then, we’ve expanded to more than 25 states. A Volunteer Coordinator(s) is chosen to head up each of PPMD’s Connect locations, and groups hold in-person get-togethers and serve as a local point of contact for families. Each group also has Facebook group to allow families to seek support and connection online.
