This past Saturday college football fans across the nation banded together for the Coach to Cure MD program.
The program, in its eighth year, has helped raise more than $2 million to battle Duchenne muscular dystrophy.
What you might not realize, however, is the Coach to Cure program has a strong Roane County connection.
It was started by 1988 Harriman High School graduate Brad Todd because his nephew, Joel Poysky, 13, suffers from the disease.
Joel’s mother, Rachel, is also a Harriman graduate.
