I am running the Disney Marathon Dopey Challenge this year and have decided to run with Jar of Hope! It is an organization dedicated to finding a cure for Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD). DMD is a fatal, muscle-wasting congenital disease that occurs in once in every 3,500 live births and affects mostly boys. Since this disease is so rare they need your help and support to find a cure. Please consider helping support their great cause!! 

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?
