Campaign has ended


I am so excited to participate in the runDisney 5k over Marathon weekend! While working toward my goal of the 5k, I am also proud to support Jar of Hope in their mission to find a cure for Duchenne muscular dystrophy.  As a teacher, I am personally supporting this organization in memory of a very special former student who lost his battle with DMD in 2021.  Jar of Hope is doing amazing work to seek a cure for DMD and support families who are facing this daunting diagnosis.  I am proud to support them through the runDisney 5k, and I hope that you will help support me and their cause.  Any donation is greatly appreciated! Thank you so much!

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?
