UGA, UT coaches to wear patches for Coach to Cure MD

Coaching staffs at both Georgia and Tennessee will wear a special arm patch as a part of Coach to Cure MD week, a nationwide movement to raise awareness of Duchenne muscular dystrophy.

Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy is a progressive muscle disorder—and the most common fatal childhood genetic disorder—that causes loss of muscle function and independence.

This is the fifth year of Coach to Cure MD, a partnership between the American Football Coaches Association (AFCA) and Parent Project MD. The program has raised more than $1 million in donations this season for Duchenne muscular dystrophy.

Out of 124 Football Bowl Subdivision teams, at least 120 coaching staffs are participating including several teams who are idle this week, but will wear the patches for other games.
