I am so excited to announce a new sporting fundraiser we have this year called Ice Duchenne!

PPMD has partnered with the Central Collegiate Hockey Association Coaches (CCHA) this weekend, February 10th and 11th. The coaching staffs of all 11 teams will band together to help raise awareness for Duchenne and wear pins with the Ice Duchenne insignia to show their support.

And what’s most exciting, you can participate from the comfort of your own home!

How you can get involved

Western Michigan will be holding an online auction to raise funds for PPMD starting on Thursday, Feb. 9 at 5 pm and closing on Sunday at 11:59 pm through IceDuchenne.org.

There are four items up for bid:

  • a signed Nicklas Lindstrom jersey
  • a jersey signed by the 2010-11 Hart Memorial Trophy winner Corey Perry
  • a Detroit Red Wings jersey signed by the 2011-12 team
  • four floor seats to one Indiana Pacers home game of the winners choice (excluding games against the Miami Heat and New York Knicks)

Check out the auction.
You can also help spread the message via social media by using #IceDuchenne and #NoBadDays when tweeting this week!

About the Organizer

Below is a video about the organizer of Ice Duchenne, Rob Facca, assistant hockey coach at Western Michigan University and father of 4-year old, Louie Facca who has been diagnosed with Duchenne.


If you would like to learn more about this program or to make a donation, visit IceDuchenne.org.

The Faccas, like us, see a future without Duchenne, but we need you to make it happen. Join us. Together, we will end Duchenne!
