“Matthew is an 11 year old boy from Greensboro who loves reading, history, animals, sports, especially football and the Carolina Panthers.  He is curious, brave, determined and has the most infectious laugh. He also happens to have Duchenne muscular dystrophy.  As of today, DMD has not put too many limits on him and we want to keep it that way. That is why we created Miles for Matthew. He is currently in his first clinical trial for treatment at Duke and thanks to all you champions out there, we are getting closer to an independent and healthy future.  We would love for you to join us in the fight for the future of all boys with Duchenne.”

It is now time to showcase this great program in the Triad. We will be supporting the Miles for Matthew Run by setting up a tent to raise awareness and racing with kids in the custom chairs. This is a very worthy cause that supports research to cure Duchene.
