What an incredible Coach To Cure MD weekend! Our 12th anniversary season was our biggest to date with Werner Ladder joining the team as a national sponsor and Whataburger supporting us in the Southwest! With over 100 families raising awareness at colleges and high schools across the country, it is the perfect way to end an amazing Duchenne Action Month!
Everything you did from sharing your #MakeEveryDayCount moments on social media, to Coach To Cure MD tailgate parties, to running races as part of our Race to End Duchenne team, to creating your own fundraising pages in honor of a loved one, has made a huge impact on our fight to end Duchenne.
While September may be coming to an end, there are still plenty of ways to join the fight!
- Our Race to End Duchenne program has something for everyone whether you are an experienced athlete or looking for your first race, Race to End Duchenne has teams across the country (and around the globe!)
- PPMD’s DIY series offers unlimited ways to fund the fight to end Duchenne — from setting up and sharing a donation page to hosting a social event, raising money and awareness is just a click away!
- Donate your birthday to PPMD through Facebook and encourage your friends and family to do the same — it couldn’t be easier.
- Honor 25 years of progress in the fight to end Duchenne. Make your contribution in recognition of PPMD’s 25th Anniversary Year and ensure that we continue to lead and support the Duchenne community.
There are always opportunities to educate your neighbors, co-workers, or classmates. There are always opportunities to advocate in Washington. There are always opportunities to join the fight.
Talk to your family, look at your calendar, and let the PPMD team know how you would like to get involved now. And as you take action throughout the year, share your victories with me and the entire PPMD community on social media by using the hashtag #EndDuchenne.
Thank you again for creating such an incredibly impactful September!
