Climb to CureDuchenne

Join us for the fifth annual Climb to CureDuchenne: Pick Your Peak 2013. 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 research projects that are so close to 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 donations and Climb to CureDuchenne. Pick a date that works best for you. 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.

Some of this year’s planned events include:

  • Mt. Aconcagua highest mountain in the Americas located in the Andes mountain range in Argentina (22,841 feet)
    • 9-year-old Tyler Armstrong to attempt to break record for youngest person to climb Mt. Aconcagua
  • Mt. Mitchell the highest peak of the Appalachian Mountains located in North Carolina and the highest peak in the Eastern United States (6,684 feet)
    • Four Duchenne dads from the Southeast to climb

We would like to add your local climb to this list! It doesn’t have to be a strenuous climb it can be a walk or hike. Plan an event that works for you and your area.

We hope you’ll set your own personal climbing challenge, big or small, to help us conquer Duchenne. Organize a team and encourage your friends, family and colleagues to join and support 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.

To get motivated, watch the Pick Your Peak video from last year.
