2024 WDW Marathon Run for JAR of Hope

by Bill Lowe




This August I will turn 60 years young.  Thirty years ago, I told myself that when I turn 60 I would run my last marathon if I was still able. My first 26.2 was back in 1993. I raised money for an organization that helps young children fight cancer.  Today, I cannot think of a better way to close out my marathon running days than to raise funds for another wonderful organization that helps children and their families deal with such a dreadful disease.  

As this journey begins, I am excited to see how God will use me and the monies I can raise to help these families have a more enjoyable life!!

My prayer is that one day this disease will be completely curable!

Come join me next January as we celebrate these families!!

God Bless.

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,
