A Little Change Makes All The Difference-Support A Good Cause!

by Jessica Kiswah




Campaign has ended


Hello Everyone! For the last couple of years, my goal was to run a Disney half marathon. After putting my goal aside, I have decided to run the Walt Disney World Half Marathon on January 6th, 2024 in honor of the JAR of Hope's Foundation.

JAR of Hope's mission is dedicated to bringing awareness and raising funds directed to ongoing research in the hope of eliminating Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. JAR of Hope is an organization that gives thousands of children the chance to beat a disease that currently has no cure. Through various funding and awareness campaigns, JAR of Hope remains steadfast in its mission to knockout a disease that has, until now, remained undefeated.

My goal is to raise $1,000 dollars for this wonderful cause. I have until December 30th, 2023 to raise funds. I am here to ask my friends and family to help me run the Walt Disney Half Marathon on behalf of the JAR of Hope Foundation. Not only will you be supporting me on this journey, but you will be supporting many children who have Muscular Dystrophy. Thank you for all of your support! Lets make this happen :) 

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?
