Running to Save Jamesy's Life

This is the 6th consecutive time I will be running through the desert. This time I am doing it to raise funds for the clinical trial at the University of Fla. We need 4.4 million to see this thru the life cycle, but we only need 100k more to start enrolling the children. 

Please donate what you can. This is a monumental moment in fighting Duchenne. We will not stop. We must save the first child. Duchenne has claimed the lives of EVERY child who has ever had this disease, we need to change this. 

JAR of Hope is taking on the G2G once again. This very well might be Jim's last dance. You are going to want to come on out and enjoy the last time Jim will ever do this race. Jim needs to spend more time at home with Jamesy. Jamesy is 14 now, and this will be Jim's 6 consecutive starts at this amazing event. Jamesy has lost the ability to walk, but we are not done fighting yet. Our intentions are to fund the clinical trial at the University of Florida to help understand more about this devastating disease.

Jim has said, "It's been a great ride running the G2G, but this was never about racing". This has and will always be about finding a cure for Jamesy and making his quality of life that much better than Duchenne allows. I can't thank everyone enough for all their support.

Let's bond together and make this the best event to say Farwell to Jim as this is his Last Dance in the desert.

JAR of Hope!
