Oilers to Support Coach to Cure MD

Oilers to Support Coach to Cure MD

The University of Findlay football team will be participating in Coach to Cure MD for their football game at Lake Erie College on Saturday, Sep. 24.

The American Football Coaches Association (AFCA) sponsored program seeks to raise awareness and money to fund research for Duchenne muscular dystrophy, the most prolific lethal genetic disorder of childhood.

Since the AFCA launched this partnership in 2008, college football's backers have generously given roughly $1 million in cash and other donations. Those gifts have raised awareness of this great cause and helped fund critical research grants from ParentProject MD to university faculty at schools ranging from Florida to Missouri to UCLA, Ohio State and Penn, among others.

Coaches from the Oilers staff will be wearing patches on the sideline to promote this drive during their game against the Storm, which is scheduled to begin at 1 p.m. in Jack Britt Stadium.
