We’ve never been closer to a treatment for DMD. Every dollar we receive for ETED goes directly to supporting gene therapy. Specifically, we donate all the funds we raise to the renowned University of Texas UT Southwestern Wellstone Muscular Dystrophy Cooperative Research Center through Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy (PPMD) where scientists recently made a breakthrough with gene therapy and successfully corrected the mutations that cause DMD in test subjects.
For many boys with DMD and their families, this technology, known as CRISPR, is our best hope for a treatment, for this muscle-wasting genetic disorder that is robbing us of our time together. All of our efforts have been for this, which is why there’s no better time to support Everest to End Duchenne by donating to the organization, or via one of the 10 individuals trekking to Mount Everest Base Camp this fall to raise awareness of the efforts.
It’s not too late to become a 2017 sponsor
As we prepare for our signature trek to Mount Everest Base Camp in Nepal, we offer many ways for individuals and organizations to support this important effort. We’re happy to customize a sponsorship for your needs, and welcome your involvement in the many promotional opportunities we coordinate before, during, and after the trek itself.
