World Duchenne Day on Saturday, September 7th provides a fantastic opportunity to anyone of any age to create awareness of Duchenne muscular dystrophy and raise funds to help fund a cure. Likewise, the entire week of September is recognized as Duchenne Awareness Week -- we’ve got one whole week to make a difference so let’s do this!

By getting involved and taking some very simple actions, caregivers and patients can contribute to the efforts to help find a cure. Here’s how you can participate and become part of the solution to help save this generation of those affected by Duchenne.


Stock up on CureDuchenne World Duchenne Day T-shirts!

Wear your shirts on September 7th (and the whole week!) and post photos of you, your family, your friends and your co-workers in the shirts to help create awareness of what Duchene is and why it is important to find a cure.
