Our biggest fundraiser
of the Year

After his first treatment in 2009, Ryan and his siblings started a fundraiser to give back and raise awareness so more people with his disease could get treatment. Each year, family, friends and the Wichita community rallied around Ryan’s cause, helping share his story and increase awareness through growing the annual fundraiser. Since their start the event has raised over $400,000 and welcomed nearly 10,000 people. Today CTFAC is a 501(c)(3) non-profit and their Concert in the Country is in its 12th annual year.

Concert In the Country 2021

Recap of last year

The 11th annual Concert In The Country was a HUGE success! We are so grateful for the opportunity to introduce new people to our organization while raising awareness for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy and stem cell therapy. It’s so rewarding to share Ryan‘s story with more people as we bring our mission to fruition!

The fantastic night could not have been possible without the help of our incredible volunteers and corporate partners, especially our presenting sponsor, Mel Hambelton Ford, and our creative team behind the scenes Hexcode Designs! We welcomed over 700 people to a one of a kind event and are still beaming with joy to report that everyone had a great time while Coming Together for a Cure!

Sponsor the event

We are looking for sponsors for this year’s event. With your help we can continue helping others in their fight against rare diseases by advancing support and access to adult stem cell therapy.
