Rick Buro - Last Dance

by Rick Buro




Campaign has ended


This will be my fourth and FINAL G2G Ultra.  Frankly, last year was it….and then I saw a video of Jamesy being carried from his wheelchair down the stairs to the car….it’s one thing to hear about how this disease will progress…it’s another thing to watch it.  I simply cannot sit on the sidelines.  

In supporting our efforts in the Grand Canyon this year, we will be able to continue the clinical trial (that your support allowed to begin last year), and also provide a wheelchair accessible vehicle for Jamesy to get around.  

I will put my body through this absolutely daunting race and it would mean the world if you supported my efforts. Gratitude!

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!

How would you like to support?
