Join Rick Porcello and Team Joseph to Strike Out Duchenne muscular dystrophy.  Duchenne is the most common degenerative muscle disease found in boys.  As most kids are growing and gaining independence, boys with Duchenne are losing muscle function and mobility.  Be a part of Rick’s team to find a cure.  It’s time to Strike Out Duchenne!

Here’s how it works . . . for each dollar you donate or raise, Rick will match the amount up to $10,000.  Now, that’s exciting -- you can make a one-time donation or ask your friends, family, co-workers and neighbors to help you contribute to a cure – and Rick will double it!  And you’ll have a chance to win exciting prizes and change the lives of thousands of children at the same time!

It’s this easy . . . if you’d like to make a one-time donation, just click the DONATE button.  You’ll make your donation and know you’re helping to fund critical research with the potential to save lives.  That’s a great thing!

Or . . . you can be a part of Rick Porcello’s Strike Out Team. Select the JOIN THE TEAM button on the right to join our fundraising team. You’ll get your own personal Strike Out Team fundraising page that you can share with your own friends and family. Imagine if you asked just 5 people to help you and they each told 5 people . . . that’s the stuff that can change the world! 

Because we believe that every dollar counts and there is no donation too small (or too large!), EVERY donor or fundraiser will be put into a drawing to win an autographed Rick Porcello baseball.

Join the Team and help Rick Porcello and Team Joseph to Strike Out Duchenne. 

Team Joseph is a non-profit, 501c3 whose mission is to aggressively fund cutting edge research that will treat or cure Duchenne muscular dystrophy.  It is our goal to make a difference for this generation of children affected by Duchenne. CLICK HERE TO READ OUR STORY.
