Campaign has ended


Join me as I take on the ultimate running challenge - the Goofy Challenge on Disney Marathon weekend! Not only will I be pushing my limits by completing a half marathon on Saturday and a full marathon on Sunday, but I am also dedicating my efforts to support a wonderful cause - Jar of Hope.

Jar of Hope is a remarkable charity that is dedicated to finding a cure for Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD), a devastating genetic disorder that affects young boys. By fundraising for Jar of Hope, I aim to make a difference in the lives of those affected by DMD and contribute towards groundbreaking research and treatments.

As I lace up my running shoes and embark on this incredible journey, I invite you to be a part of my mission. Your generous donations will not only provide hope and support to those battling DMD, but they will also fuel my determination to conquer the Goofy Challenge and make a lasting impact.

Every dollar raised will bring us one step closer to finding a cure for DMD and ensuring a brighter future for those affected by this condition. Together, let's create a ripple of hope and transform lives through our collective efforts.

Join me in supporting Jar of Hope and let's make a difference, one stride at a time. Together, we can bring hope, strength, and joy to those who need it most. Thank you for your support!

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?
