5k chip timed races to support Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy, the largest non-profit in the US focused entirely on Duchenne and Becker muscular dystrophies.

Who is Matthew?

Matthew is a true champion for Duchenne muscular dystrophy research. Our high school senior has been in 9 studies and clinical trials that we hope will lead to a brighter future for all boys with Duchenne. Miles for Matthew was created to raise awareness and funds for DMD research but it also honors Matthew's bravery and selflessness. He is currently in year 5 of a gene therapy trial and thanks to all you champions out there, we are confident that he will have healthy future.  We would love for you to join us in the fight for the future of all boys with Duchenne.
