Running for a cause!

Campaign has ended


I have decided to "run" in the Disney 5K to help support this wonderful foundation JAR of Hope. 

JAR of Hope supports children with the rare Duchenne muscular dystrophy disease and supports a team of research scientists and doctors dedicated to eliminating the disease.

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. AND THERE IS NO CURE.

Please help me support this amazing group of people and the hundreds of thousands of children that suffer from this disease. Any amount helps!

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?
