The American Football Coaches Association will hold its sixth annual Coach to Cure MD effort with the games of September 28. More than 110 FBS schools, including all 14 Southeastern Conference schools, will be wearing a Coach to Cure MD patch to raise awareness and funding for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy research.
The program is a partnership between Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy and the AFCA. The goal is to raise money and awareness of Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, which is the most common fatal genetic disorder among boys worldwide. This is the sixth year of the Coach to Cure MD program, which has now surpassed the million dollar mark for donations.
All SEC coaching staffs will be wearing Coach to Cure MD patches this week to raise awareness and funding for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy research. Fans are encouraged to donate online at www.CoachtoCureMD.org or donate $5 by texting CURE to 90999.
