Rally for Ryan

Ryan, a 13 year old boy, who lives in the Chicago suburb of Naperville, Illinois, was diagnosed with Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) on April 15, 2008. Ryan is an active boy who loves hockey, baseball, jet skiing, and riding his motorized bike. As Ryan continues to weaken, these activities will become increasingly difficult, until no longer possible. This dreadful disease took Ryan’s uncle Patrick’s life at age 17. We are committed to making sure this disease does not get passed down to another generation.

Rally for Ryan is dedicated to finding a cure for this devastating disease. It holds various events and 100% of all money raised from all events is passed to researchers who are diligently trying to find treatments and ultimately a cure for DMD. It also collects donations to fund researchers to find a cure for DMD.
