It is a progressive muscle wasting condition that confines most children to a wheelchair by the age of 12. It is Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. There is no cure and no one survives.
This Thursday marks a significant milestone in the race to find a cure for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy with the Bulldogs and Tigers joining forces to do battle for the Inaugural Save our Sons Cup.
On the evening we will be launching the International symbol for DMD and are asking everyone to help raise awareness for this debilitating illness by adopting and supporting the ‘SNAP, SHARE, SHOW YOU CARE” social media campaign.
Snap a photo doing the DMD link in front of a monument, at a sporting event, or with a celebrity... Anywhere and everywhere!
The linked finger salute represents unity and togetherness, as we can only beat DMD by working together to raise awareness.
One finger represents the people, the supporters and fundraisers, while the other finger represents all children with DMD.
The linking of the fingers represents the missing link in their genes.
Share it on social media and #Link4DMD.
Save our Sons is working closely with UK counterpart ‘Joining Jack’ and some of the world’s leading researchers in Australia, the U.K and U.S with one goal in mind – to fund a successful human clinical trial.
Be sure to head out to the game this Thursday. In the meantime; SNAP, SHARE AND SHOW YOU CARE #Link4DMD
