Head Coach Sumlin: Coach to Cure MD

Aug. 3, 2009

HOUSTON - On Sept. 26, head coach Kevin Sumlin will be one of thousands of college football coaches participating in Coach to Cure MD, a project of the American Football Coaches Association aimed to defeat Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.

This September game day, participating college coaches will be wearing a "Coach to Cure MD" arm patch and will mention the cause in their pre-game and post-game conferences. University of Houston football fans can support the cause and Coach Sumlin with donations to help fund research.

Cougar fans can donate via mobile phone text messaging during the Sept. 26 home game versus Texas Tech, which will be nationally televised on ESPN2. The donation process is easy- fans just text the word "Cure" to 90999 to donate $5 automatically.

This is a nationwide project designed to build awareness about the disorder and support researchers trying to find a treatment and cure. Duchenne is a disease that predominately targets boys by robbing their ability to walk before they are teenagers and giving them a life expectancy only to the 20s.
