MEET OUR LITTLE BUDDY NED
Ned has special muscles. They aren’t getting strong like they should. And as he grows, they’ll only get weaker. Scientists are close to finding a cure for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy — the fatal disease plaguing Ned and over 200,000 other children worldwide — but there’s still a lot of heavy lifting to do. It will take a village.
BE PART OF NED’S VILLAGE
Today is our little buddy Ned’s fourth birthday, so join us in showing him some love! Make a commitment to doing a charity race for DMD and we’ll reward you with a $50 Ned gift card. If you’ve wanted a reason to get outdoors and get moving, this is it!
