Three years ago, a crew of 12 Georgians set out across the US in a wheelchair-accessible RV to do two things: 1. Help find a cure for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy and 2. Raise awareness for wheelchair accessibility across the country. Their product, a feature film, has won almost 30 awards and has raised over a million dollars for DMD research (all proceeds along the way have gone to research for the disease). DMD is the number one genetic killer of children worldwide.

Now, however, they have a new initiative to sell 1,000,000 DVDs in a year. The DVDs cost $20. $17 goes straight to research. We're trying to raise 17 million dollars for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.

If you have a moment, please help this homegrown cause. Watch the trailer:


If you feel so moved, forward it on to your friends!

Thank you so much. Have an excellent day.
