Players MUST be registered with the Manalapan REC to participate (for insurance purposes).
The purpose of this fundraiser is to help JAR of Hope take a stand against Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.
Duchenne is a progressive muscle wasting disease. It effects 1 in every 3500 boys. Currently, there are about 300,000 boys affected worldwide,very small amount of boys considering the earths population.
We currently have Jamesy in a study, that if it works, it will prevent him from being in a wheel chair before his 12th birthday. He's not alone. We would love to get other boys who are currently walking to continue to walk until we can find a cure.
In the last 4 months as many boys past due to heart complications, all before their 15th birthday. They need our help....I know we can change the trajectory of this disease if we can band together.
