It was my goal to do 26 miles for my 26th birthday at the Walt Disney Marathon in 2018. My friend signed us up for Dopey instead and as luck would have it my fertility treatments were successful. I was 6 months pregnant when Dopey came and I finished the first three races and just enough of the marathon to get my cumulative 26 miles. Now my son is 5 years old and cheered me on completing my first Dopey in 2024. He’s excited to come back and do his first 5k with me as I take on Dopey 2025. 

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,
