10 PUSH-UPS FOR $10 BUCKS!!!
We started this fundraiser to raise awareness about Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. Duchenne is a terminal, muscle wasting disease without a cure nor stabilizing drug.
The reason for the push up is because the boys who are affected by this disease:
1)they can not do a push up due to lack of upper body strength.
2) if they attempt to do push-ups they will break down muscle fibers in their chest/shoulders/tricepts etc and do not have the ability to produce a skeleton muscle protein to repair the damaged muscle fibers as we do.
My son James was diagnosed 9/13/13, before then I had never heard of this disease and I am doing everything I can to raise awareness and funding.
For very dollar that goes into this fund, I WILL DO 1 PUSH UP.

100% of these funds will go to clinical studies to help find a cure.
