Team Telomere’s MDBR Team started as Team Josh’s DCO Riders 2015, in honor of Joshua Friedman. Josh passed away in 2011 from Dyskeratosis Congenita (DC), a telomere biology disorder. Josh lived a full and beautiful life and touched many people throughout. Josh’s lasting legacy is a gift to our community as his story has helped raise over $350,000 in research.
We partnered with Penn’s Orphan Disease Center in 2014, to excel our ability to fund quality science for Telomere Biology Disorders. To date we have raised over $450,000. Our Team Captain is Mayra Garcia who is available to answer any questions you may have. Our goal this year is to raise $30k that will be matched dollar for dollar by the Orphan Disease Center.
We are asking our community to rally their friends, family, and networks to support our work. By creating a fundraiser for Team Telomere, you will help our community move forward with our mission, and you'll help your friends feel good about doing good.

Starting a fundraiser is easy to do, and it's fun. We'll even give you all the tools you'll need to make a difference.
