Lexie Fyfe is Dopey!!!

Campaign has ended


I am going Dopey for JAR of Hope again.  JAR of Hope is trying to raise awareness and money to find a cure for Duchenne muscular dystrophy.  Duchenne muscular dystrophy is a progressive muscle wasting disease that does not have a cure. This disease has been around for 200 years and not one child has ever survived. We plan to put an end to this disease and save the first child. This cause is really important to me as I have family friends that are dealing with this horrible disease.

The Dopey challenge is a series of races at Disney World.  I will run a 5k on Thursday, Jan 4th, a 10k on Friday, Jan 5th, a half marathon on Saturday, Jan 6th, and a full marathon (26.2 miles) on Sunday, Jan 7th.  Total miles 48.6!  I will run this year wearing JAR of Hope signs and clothes to raise awareness.  I'm hoping that people will ask me about the organization and check out their website.  And of course, donate!!

Please donate if you can.  Every $1 helps. Thanks!!

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,
