Form a Climb to CureDuchenne Team
Last year team Hawken's Heros climbed
Grand Teton in Wyoming as part of the
Climb to CureDuchenne Pick Your Peak.
Join us for the fourth annual Climb to CureDuchenne Pick Your Peak 2012. You can help find a cure for Duchenne muscular dystrophy. It's simple, it's local and it's fun. Choose a mountain, hill or tall building to climb in order to increase awareness about Duchenne and help raise funds to support our promising research projects and find treatments to save our sons' lives. With your help, we can make it to the peak.
We invite you to form a team, set up a fundraising page, secure personal sponsors/contributors and Climb to CureDuchenne on June 23 or June 30 (other dates may be substituted). There are no geographical or athletic ability limitations. You pick where you want to walk, hike or climb. You can also join a team or donate without climbing.
This year we have an elite team climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro June 25-July 2. This team includes 8-year-old Tyler Armstrong of Yorba Linda, Calif. After obtaining special permission by the Tanzanian government, Tyler will be the second youngest person ever to climb Mount Kilimanjaro. His ascent to the 19,341 ft. summit will help raise funds and awareness for CureDuchenne. Tyler became interested in helping boys who aren't able to take on the challenges of mountain climbing when he met a Duchenne boy close to his age who is wheelchair-bound. Even at the age of 8, Tyler realized he could use his athletic abilities to help others. Tyler will represent the more than 300,000 boys worldwide when he faces this epic, eight-day challenge and adventure. To donate to Team Tyler click here.
We hope you'll set your own personal climbing challenge, big or small, to help us conquer Duchenne. Do it yourself or put together a team and encourage your friends, family and colleagues to sponsor your climb. You can register and set up your fundraising page by clicking here. It costs $25 to participate, which includes a CureDuchenne t-shirt.
