Team Joseph is a non-profit organization whose mission is to aggressively fund cutting edge research to find a treatment or cure for Duchenne muscular dystrophy. Formed around the fight of Joseph Penrod, Team Joseph began with a mom who wouldn’t let her son be defined by his diagnosis and, with the support of family, friends and an army of volunteers, has evolved into the movement it is today.

Our focus is on rapidly moving basic research into applications that can make a difference for the current generation of boys afflicted with this devastating disease as well as for generations that aren’t even born yet. We are a caring community of motivated people joined together in efforts to give young boys affected by Duchenne muscular dystrophy, not only a chance at a better life, but simply a chance at a life.
