Today, Monday September 7, 2020 is World Duchenne Day!

The date was chosen because there are 79 exons in the DMD gene. Most countries throughout the world write the date as Day-Month-Year, so September 7th is most commonly written as 7-9.

World Duchenne Day provides a fantastic opportunity for anyone and everyone to create awareness of Duchenne muscular dystrophy. It’s especially important for those of us in the Duchenne community to make the most of this day. There are many different ways you can participate from anywhere in the world.
