SEMO to participate in Coach To Cure MD program Sept. 29 | Events
CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) - Southeast Missouri State University announced their football coaches will wear armbands as part of the Coach To Cure MD program when the Redhawks face Jacksonville State on Saturday, September 29.
Coach To Cure MD program is a partnership between the American Football Coaches Association, a professional organization for over 10,000 college football coaches and staff, and Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy, the largest national charity devoted exclusively to Duchenne muscular dystrophy.
According to the university, one football Saturday of each season AFCA coaches nationwide agree to promote Coach To Cure MD. They say this year, they chose Sept. 29.
By wearing the armbands, mentioning the program during on and off-field interviews and in some instances doing even more extensive media relations around the date, the university says coaches are rolling up their sleeves and proudly getting involved.
