Last weekend Wigwam had the amazing opportunity to support the CureDuchenne team of hikers summit the Grand Tetons. Their motivation? Finding a cure for a rare form of muscular dystrophy called, Duchenne. Although conditions weren't optimal, this group of hikers didn't let the threat of bad weather stop them from taking the journey. For all parties, this was going to be a physical challenge and emotional challenge. Especially for Paul Miller and Bill Procko. Both Paul and Bill were hiking and will continue to hike for their sons, Hawken and Evan. I had the personal opportunity to meet Paul this past Winter and can say that he qualifies as a, "Super Dad" in my mind. A Super Dad on a mission to find a Cure for Duchenne. Without even knowing Bill, I can assume the same qualities about him. Super Dad's.Over the course of 3 days, this team of Dads and CureDuchenne advocates, hiked, climbed, and camped in tough conditions. With 70mph winds at night, changing temperatures and unstable snow conditions, the group powered through and made it to the top. When asked how it hike/climb went, one of the team members responded, "It was great! But...one of the scariest things I've ever done!" It was a true test of faith and perseverance for all involved. I must say, I've had the opportunity to work with many organizations over the past several years while working with Wigwam and this one has really hit my heart hard. Wigwam is honored to have been involved in this amazing adventure. A big thanks to Paul and Debra Miller for allowing us to be a part of this. I sincerely hope that this hike helped get us one step closer (in Wigwam socks) to finding a CURE for DMD. We're with you every step of the way in your effort to find a CURE. Congrats!

CureDuchenne is a grassroots effort to bring back focus. We’re not here to create a profit-making organization. CureDuchenne was started by parents whose only child has DMD. If one son can be saved, there is hope for all.
