CHAPEL HILL — North Carolina inadvertantly published the incorrect number in its football game notes this week for donating funds to help find a cure for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. The correct digits: 90999. Text the word "cure", and fans will automatically pledge $5 via their cell phone bills.
A team spokesman said the school was given the wrong number by the organization.
Eleven ACC coaches — including UNC's Butch Davis, N.C. State's Tom O'Brien, Duke's David Cutcliffe and Wake Forest's Jim Grobe — will wear a "Coach to Cure MD" armband during their games this weekend. The American Football Coaches Association has endorsed the nation-wide
project, and football fans can support the program by donating online at www.CoachtoCureMD.org, or via text messaging.
