My name is Michael Sclafani; I am a Realtor and a CKO Kickboxing Gym Owner in Monmouth and Ocean County.
In the Summer of 2017, a good friend of mine was sponsoring a Fundraising Event for the JAR of Hope. I had heard of the foundation but I didn't really know too much about the foundation nor the disease Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. During the even, James Raffone got up to speak about Why he created JAR of Hope, the disease, his son and his mission to save his son as well as other children diagnosed with Duchenne.
As a Father, I was immediately impacted emotionally and knew that this was an effort I wanted o get behind and support.
I have attended a different number of JAR of Hope events since that initial fundraiser, but was happy that my companies leaders brought Jim on board to speak about Duchenne and JAR of Hope's Mission at the 2019 CKO Kickboxing Owner's Convention. Shortly after, I was again fortunate to have Jim come do one of his infamous "Push-Up Campaigns" at all 4 of my CKO Kickboxing Locations where we got to spread the word about Duchenne but also JAR of Hope.
While I have enjoyed sponsoring different efforts of the JAR of Hope, nothing gave me more joy than having the opportunity to become a board member in the Fall of 2019. I knew that when I joined the board that JAR of Hope's Missions officially became my mission too and that is why I am asking you to please donate anything you can to help this foundation.
For every $20 donation or MORE to my campaign KNOCKING OUT DUCHENNE, I will give any Non CKO Member a 3 Class Pass to my Gyms located in Freehold, Toms River & Wall.
For every $20 donation or MORE to my campaign KNOCKING OUT DUCHENNE, I will give any CKO Member a CKO/JAR of Hope combo T'Shirt
For every $10 donation or MORE to my campaign KNOCKING OUT DUCHENNE, I will give any CKO Member a CKO/Jar of Hope combo Gym Towel
Thank You all so much for your generosity and support
I Love You All!
