Ohio State, Western Michigan to wear patches honoring fight against Duchenne muscular dystrophy

Ohio State and Western Michigan will face-off on Saturday, but they’re also coming together for a great cause. The two coaching staffs will wear Coach To Cure patches in honor of the fight against Duchenne muscular dystrophy during the game.

The genetic disorder is one of nine types of muscular dystrophy and primarily affects boys, though it can be found in girls.

This isn’t the first time the Buckeyes have stood up for this cause, as they awarded a game ball to a young fan who suffers from the disorder during the 2014 season.

In 2013, 620 schools and 11,367 coaches participated in the Coach To Cure MD program.

For more information on the program and the fight against Duchenne muscular dystrophy, check out coachtocuremd.org.
