CureDuchenne is a nonprofit that raises awareness and funds research to find a cure for Duchenne muscular dystrophy. Duchenne is a progressive muscle disease that impacts one in every 3,500 boys. Boys are usually diagnosed at age 5, are in a wheelchair by 12 and most don’t survive their mid-20s. Currently there is no cure for Duchenne. Proceeds of the event will fund impactful research to find a cure for Duchenne.
