The patches are meant to raise awareness about Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy and help raise funds for researching a disease that is the most common fatal disorder among boys worldwide.

The partnership between Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy and the American Football Coaches Association has raised more than $1 million. Fans can donate $5 by texting the word CURE to 90999.
