Tim & Tracy Running for a Cure

by Timothy Montalvo and Tracy Fernandez




We are running 48.6 MILES in a single event weekend to save the first child from Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy!

Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) is one of the rarest diseases on Earth. DMD is a fatal, muscle-wasting disease you are born with. It occurs once in every 3,500 live births and affects mostly boys. In the United States, with a population of over 330,000,000 people, only about 20,000 children are stricken with Duchenne. And there is no cure.

With your donation and support, we can continue our mission and turn the dream of finding a cure into a reality because no child should have to suffer like this!

JAR of Hope is running its 7th consecutive runDisney Marathon Weekend. We are running this event bc Jamesy and 11 other boys are going to be in a clinical trial at the University of Florida. Yes, this is going to be the first of its kind Stem Cell Clinical Trial to see if we can improve the quality of life. We want to make a HUEG IMPACT in this disease. No child has ever survived Duchenne. Its been 200 years and we need to change that! Thanks to everyone on this team this year we are going to do just that! 

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for joining this team and giving me the opportunity to help save my son's life and other people alike. 


Warmest regards, 

How would you like to support?
