BLUFFTON, Ohio - When the Bluffton University football team puts its pads on to tangle with Kalamazoo College on Saturday, Sept. 26, at Kalamazoo, Head Coach Tyson Veidt and his staff will be wearing Coach to Cure Muscular Dystrophy patches on the sidelines. They will be among the thousands of coaches across the nation participating in this annual event.
Coach to Cure MD is a partnership between the American Football Coaches Association and Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy (PPMD), the largest nonprofit organization in the United States focused entirely on Duchenne muscular dystrophy, the leading childhood genetic killer of young men.
Coach to Cure MD is a nation-wide project designed to build awareness about the disorder and raise money to support researchers trying to find a treatment and cure.
2009 marks the Bluffton staff's second consecutive year participating in Coach to Cure MD. Coach Veidt stated, "The Bluffton University coaches hope that by participating in this partnership and volunteering we may build awareness and increase funding for research and ultimately a cure for MD."
Anyone interested in supporting muscular dystrophy research is invited to donate money to Coach to Cure MD, either through the website (www.CoachToCureMD.org) or using mobile phone text message donations (txt "CURE" to 90999 to donate $5 on your next phone bill).
