Our goal is to help give kids with Duchenne muscular dystrophy a chance to do the things that kids are supposed to do.

Sam’s Day was started in 2005 by friends of Sam Killian. Sam is a 10 year old boy from Rockwall, TX that was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy in 2005. With your support, we are having an impact on this disease, and how it affects the 150,000 boys around the world with Duchenne MD.
