A Unique opportunity for Corporate Sponsors
Duchenne Alliance 2012 Legacy Sponsorship Opportunity
Higher Resolution in the
Alleviate the savage funding odyssey that exists in the race to therapies
by sponsoring greater transparency and more effective relationships
between the foundations and scientists working to
conquer Duchenne muscular dystrophy.
Speed our Science, Share our Reach
Children with Duchenne muscular dystrophy are in dire need of our help – muscle wasting robs them of life as they generally require a wheelchair by 11 and succumb to respiratory or cardiac complications by 20. Meaningful therapies are in reach, but we need financial support to develop them quickly. Approximately one quarter of all Duchenne cases are sporadic, so it can strike any family, regardless of prior history. Since Duchenne is the most common monogenic disorder, successful therapies will have a profound impact on society.
Corporate sponsors can take great pride by directly supporting the most innovative foundations in the world. Optimized vetting by the foundations brings greater precision to therapeutic development and has had a profound impact on productivity. World-leading scientists and foundations have notably improved the speed and effectiveness of funding.
Global Marketing Reach
The foundations that comprise the Duchenne Alliance have a global and diverse marketing reach that includes patients, parents, scientists, and concerned citizens. OpenOnward has also dedicated the DuchenneDashboard, WikiFormulation, and WikiProtocols web channels, which reach elusive life scientists. The following 14 non-profit foundations represent the most innovative organizations within the Alliance and are participating in each aspect of the 2012 marketing program, providing sponsors global reach through personal relationships:

1. ~$1M Higher Resolution Legacy Image and Web Page
The Duchenne Alliance Higher Resolution Legacy Page is an innovative marketing tool that focuses the world’s attention on the need to execute science with higher precision to drive therapies faster. Sponsors receive 1 pixel for each dollar they spend. Legacy sponsors can use this page as marketing collateral and they will receive favorable terms for future Duchenne Alliance marketing assets. The expected reach is unknown since this is a novel approach in biomedicine. The actual image size is 1280 x 800 pixels, and the legacy offer is limited by the dimensions of the image. Please see more on the Higher Resolution Legacy Page.

Our sponsorship widget displays corporate logos at the bottom of all of the participating foundations’ web pages. The expected reach is approximately 10,000 to 40,000 unique views per month. Share-of-voice depends on the number of sponsors and amount of contribution. Please see an example on the Harrison’s Fund website.
