Valparaiso University head football coach Dale Carlson will be among thousands of college coaches nationwide taking part in the third annual Coach to Cure MD program on Saturday as the Crusaders take on Drake.

American Football Coaches Association members will wear a Coach to Cure MD logo patch on the sidelines and college football fans are asked to donate to research projects supported by Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy, the largest nonprofit organization in the U.S. focused entirely on Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.

Fans can donate to Duchen Muscular Dystrophy research by either going online to www.coachtocuremd.com or by texting the word CURE to 90999 (a $5 donation will automatically be added to your next phone bill).

Last year, more than 5,200 college coaches at 351 different institutions participated in the Coach to Cure MD event.

The Crusaders and Bulldogs will kickoff at 1 p.m. on Saturday at Brown Field as part of Homecoming weekend at Valparaiso.
