Description

5k chip timed races to support Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy via Run for Our Sons, in an effort to fund research for a viable treatment for boys living with Duchenne muscular dystrophy.

Who is Matthew?

Matthew is a true champion for Duchenne muscular dystrophy research. In his 13 years, he has participated in 7 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 a gene therapy trial and thanks to all you champions out there, we are getting closer to an independent and healthy future.  We would love for you to join us in the fight for the future of all boys with Duchenne.

Learn more about PPMD and the critical role they play in educating our communities, advocating on our boys' behalf and funding research that will one day End Duchenne.
