Ready for Some Football?

While living with DMD isn't the end of the world, I hope that one day, there will be a cure for young boys diagnosed with DMD so their muscles work and they can walk -- or even play football with their friends.

Making that happen was the goal of today's Inaugural Tournament to Tackle Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. Under blue skies in Philadelphia's Fairmount Park, seven co-ed teams competed in two-hand touch football. A portion of their egistration fees as well as money raised from food and raffle ticket sales will go to Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy. So far, it looks like we raised about $1,200! If you would like to add to that amount, please click here.

None of this would have been possible without the hard work of my childhood friends Sarah and Ken. We would like to thank the folks at Philadelphia Sport and Social Club for coordinating the tournament, all of our sponsors, and everyone who participated, volunteered, or attended.

See you next year!
