EVENT: Austin Marathon 2017
EVENT DATE: Feb 19, 2017
This year we are putting on a new type of fundraiser in conjunction with the Austin Half Marathon. On February 19th, Amy Stephens and Valerie Hunt will be running the Austin Half Marathon to better their lives and help further the research for finding a cure for Duchenne. Duchenne is a 100% fatal disease mainly effecting little boys. Due to a lack of protein to the muscular system, these boys usually die by their 20’s. But through recent clinical trials and lots of funding, the cure is closer than ever. That is why Amy and Valerie are going to commit to not only running 13.1 miles but they will also do 10 Burpees per Mile for a generous donation. With your help, you can find them at the last water station doing their Burpees. They welcome you to witness and join their fun and join in on the Burpees if you like!
As if this wasn’t enough, Amy Stephens will also be dedicating her first ever Boston Marathon to running for the boys who can’t. She has worked for a long time to qualify for the great race in April and she will be raising money through April to help find a Cure.
Thank you for supporting our efforts to complete a challenging race with extra Burpees to add to the fun.
Thank you also for supporting CureDuchenne, who’s mission is to find a cure to save 300,000 boys worldwide.
All our best,
Valerie and Amy
