Football to Take Part in Charity Awareness Event

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Saturday, Sept. 27 marks Coach to Cure MD Day for football programs both across the country and across divisions. The Susquehanna football team hosts Gettysburg this Saturday at 1 p.m. and both squads will take part in the awareness event.

Now celebrating its seventh year, Coach to Cure MD seeks to raise awareness and money to fund research for Duchenne muscular dystrophy, the most prolific lethal childhood genetic disorder.

At football games across the country this Saturday, coaching staffs and players will be wearing Coach to Cure MD shoulder patches. In addition, eight-year-old twin brothers Dayton and Blake Biesecker, who were diagnosed with Duchenne muscular dystrophy at the age of six, will be in attendance at the Crusaders' game against the Bullets. The SU cheerleaders will be collecting donations throughout the game with all proceeds going to a trust fund for Dayton and Blake.

Gettysburg hosted the awareness event last year with both Dayton and Blake in attendance last fall, as well.
