Sarepta Therapeutics CEO, Doug Ingram and his daughter Eleni will be participating on #MDAteam's Marine Corps Marathon and 10K team on October 28th in Washington, DC. Doug and Eleni are thrilled to represent the MDA and run alongside others dedicating their miles to those living with muscle disease. See below as to why Doug and Eleni are running and support their efforts by making a donation to the MDA!
“A charitable race has many similarities to drug development: Many people coming together, moving with rapidity and drive, all led by a shared goal of bringing hope to patients and families. The team at Sarepta is working tirelessly to make a difference in the lives of individuals living with rare neuromuscular diseases, such as Duchenne and limb-girdle muscular dystrophies. I am privileged to do my small part to help raise awareness of life-threatening muscle diseases running with Team Momentum alongside my daughter, Eleni.”
“I feel fortunate to show my support for MDA and the patient community alongside my dad. I see how dedicated my dad and his team at Sarepta are about changing the lives of patients, and I’ve also learned a lot about the challenges individuals and families living with devastating neuromuscular diseases, such as Duchenne, face through his work. Raising awareness of these conditions and funding for research, as part of the Marine Corps 10K, is something I am excited to be a part of.”
