Michael's Cause is a run/walk that was created by NYPD Intelligence Division Sergeant Robert Capolongo to support his son Michael who has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. Rob and his wife started Michael's Cause after their 7 year old son Michael was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy in 2010. This disease is the leading fatal genetic childhood disease that affects 1 in 3500 boys worldwide. Michael's Cause was started to raise awareness of Duchenne, and direct funding to the best possible research to ultimately find a cure.
