How Do You Take Action?

There are a variety of simple and powerful actions you can take to help raise awareness and support PPMD’s work in the fight to end Duchenne. While we’ve listed a few ideas below — the sky’s the limit!

Why September?

With the growing global recognition of World Duchenne Awareness Day on September 7, the 16th Anniversary of Coach To Cure MD on September 30, Congress returning to work after summer recess, our kids heading back to school and the need to reach out to teachers and administrators about Duchenne, September is the perfect month to take action to raise awareness and crucial funds to support our fight to end Duchenne.

This September let’s all do something…

To help raise awareness.

To join the fight.

To end Duchenne.
