Local residents Jessica and Ted Rothe are organizing the 2nd Annual Bowling to Cure Duchenne event Feb. 16 at Bowlmor Lanes in Addison. Their son lives with Duchenne muscular dystrophy. Duchenne is the most common and severe form of muscular dystrophy that effects every muscle in the body. Currently there is no cure or treatment.
“We created the bowling event to help raise awareness and fund research to find a cure for Duchenne,” said Jessica Rothe. “It is a great opportunity for the community to get involved and help our sons who live with Duchenne.”
Last year Bowling to Cure Duchenne was a big success. “We would love for you to join the fun for this great cause,” said Rothe. “The money raised will help fund drug development that could bring promising treatments to the 300,000 boys/young men worldwide living with Duchenne.
