PERU, Neb. – The Peru State football coaching staff will wear the “Coach To Cure MD” patches this weekend during their game with William Penn.
The original date for the event was Sept. 30, but the ‘Cats were on the road for two straight weeks and had their bye week. Assistant coach Lou Varley and the sports information office confirmed with Danielle Garrigan, Coach to Cure MD Program Manager, and arranged to support the event on Oct. 21.
Coach to Cure MD is a partnership between the American Football Coaches Association (AFCA), a professional organization for over 10,000 college football coaches and staff, and Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy (PPMD), the largest national charity devoted exclusively to Duchenne muscular dystrophy.
The Peru State coaching staff has been involved with the Coach To Cure MD for several years and Coach Varley has coordinated the event. Varley noted, “This is just one way our staff can help to give back, even as simple as wearing the armbands, to providing awareness for such a good cause.”
