Coach to Cure MD Patches on the Sidelines
The green patches you saw college coaches wearing on the sidelines this weekend was part of a partnership between the American Football Coaches Asssociation and Parent Project MD. The goal of this partnership is to raise awareness of Duchenne muscular dystrophy, which is the most commom fatal childhood genetic order. This is the fourth year ofCoach to Cure MD, and more than 5,000 coaches at more than 400 different schools wore the patch. The program has helped Parent Project MD fund research grants at schools all across the United States.
