For many people, the time span between September and January is consumed by football – whether it be NFL, NCAA, or even high school.
This weekend, over 100 FBS schools are joining an initiative that brings us back down to earth for the day.
During the Baylor vs. West Virginia game, the coaching staff of the Bears will be wearing Coach to Cure MD patches on their shirts in attempts to raise awareness for Duchene Muscular Dystrophy research.
Coach to Cure is a partnership between the American Football Coaches Association (AFCA), which includes over 10,000 college football coaches and staff, and Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy (PPMD), the largest national charity devoted exclusively to Duchenne muscular dystrophy.
As the coaches proudly display their patches, the goals of the effort are clear: to raise national awareness of the disorder and to raise money to fund research for a cure.
Fans can participate in the effort by texting the word CURE to 90999 to donate $5 to Duchenne MD research, or you can donate online at CoachtoCureMD.org/. -- Savannah Pullin
