Duchenne Action Month

It's Duchenne Action Month!

This September, we are asking you, our community, to participate in Duchenne Action Month in order to create awareness, raise money, and make an impact in the fight to end Duchenne.

There are a variety of simple and powerful actions you can take to help raise awareness and support PPMD’s work in the fight to end Duchenne -- and we are here to help! PPMD provides the tools and support you need to take action and join the fight to end Duchenne this September.

Participate All Month!

As you will see from our interactive Duchenne Action Month Calendar, there are a number of simple things you can do -- including some new ideas that can help you share your Duchenne journey with those who may not yet understand what life is like with Duchenne in it. Even if that day’s action is something you are already doing, encourage your friends and family to join the fight!

Click here to open an expanded view of the calendar, and then click on each day to see how you can take action all month long!

New Look, Same Mission

Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy

You will notice that PPMD has a refreshed look just in time for Duchenne Action Month!

Our new logo and tagline shouldn’t feel entirely different to the PPMD you have known for over 23 years rather we hope it feels more urgent. We believe this new look empowers each of us as a member of this community to take action, to join the fight.

That’s why we wanted to unveil our new look this month. Never has there been so much promise in Duchenne research and care, and never has our voice resonated more strongly in Washington. But with all this momentum, it is more important than ever before for each of us to do what we can to end Duchenne. (It's also a hint of some more exciting changes coming from PPMD over the next several months!)

At PPMD, we’re fond of the saying, “No one can do everything. But everyone can do something."

This September let's all do something…
To help raise awareness.
To join the fight.
To end Duchenne.
