The Viking football coaching staff invites you to take part in the Coach to Cure MD fundraiser.
Coach To Cure MD Video
Coach To Cure MD is a partnership between the American Football Coaches Association (AFCA), a professional organization for over 10,000 college football coaches and staff, and Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy (PPMD), the largest national charity devoted exclusively to Duchenne muscular dystrophy.
In 2008 the AFCA adopted PPMD's Coach To Cure MD program as one of their charity efforts. One reason the AFCA was drawn to Coach To Cure MD was because of the unique parallels between Duchenne, a disorder which robs young men of precious muscle strength and college football, a game where young men are at the peak of their muscle strength.
The goals of Coach To Cure MD are simple:
Raise national awareness of the disorder
Raise money to fund research for a cure
Make a $5 Donation now. Text the word "cure" to 90999 and visit www.CoachToCureMD.org to get more involved.
One of the most effective ways you can help us promote Coach To Cure MD is by sharing our annual awareness video. This is a short piece that tells people what Duchenne is, what Coach To Cure MD is, and how easily they can help. Please check out the video. Then share the video on Facebook, through your email - anywhere you can think of that will help get people excited to join us in our fight to end Duchenne.
