Duchenne Action Month is underway — a month where YOU can do any number of things to join the fight to end Duchenne! Every day in September, PPMD provides simple things you can do to raise awareness and fund our fight to end Duchenne, as well as updates on research and care, and ways you can advocate both locally and nationally.

Participate with PPMD all month long! Check out our interactive Duchenne Action Month Calendar, and take a few minutes every day to take action! If you’re already doing the day’s action, encourage your friends and family to jump on board too.
