Aconcagua – to benefit CureDuchenne, a nonprofit that raises awareness and funds research to find a cure for Duchenne muscular dystrophy. Tyler is the youngest person to reach the summit of Mt. Aconcagua.

“Some boys my age with Duchenne can’t walk. I want the world to know about Duchenne so they can find a cure. I want those impacted with Duchenne to have a chance to live,” said Tyler.
Pick Your Own Peak
If you are unable to make the Mt. Adams climb, we hope you’ll set your own personal climbing challenge big or small to help us conquer Duchenne. Do it yourself or put together a team and encourage your friends, family and colleagues to support your climb. Create a team or join a team.
What: Teams of people across the country will climb a mountain, hill or tall building to raise awareness and fund research to find a cure for Duchenne. This is the sixth annual Climb to CureDuchenne. All funds will benefit CureDuchenne.
Where: Any mountain, hill or tall building. No geographic limitations. Anyone, regardless of athletic ability, is encouraged to participate individually or to form a team and secure personal sponsors/contributors for completing the climb.
When: We are trying to have as many teams as possible make their climb on August 22-24, the same weekend of the Mt. Adams climb. If those dates do not work, feel free to choose another day that works better.
