Sam Killian, an 8th grade student at Cain Middle School and the manager of the Cain MS football team, is an outstanding young man. Sam was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, the most common fatal genetic disorder among children, in 2005. Brad Fichtel, PE Teacher and Coach, ran with the Run For Our Sons team at the 2015 TCS New York City Marathon on November 1st in Sam’s honor to support the fight against Muscular Dystrophy. Brad finished the race!
We applaud Coach Fichtel and our student, Sam Killian, for their courage, bravery, and for going the distance together to end Duchenne.
