BENEFITING: JAR OF HOPE
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
I am honored once again to run with Team Jamesy 24/7 for the "Jar of Hope" foundation in The NYC Marathon. If you have not seen posts from me in the past, please go to Jar of Hope on Facebook or You Tube to see how this family is fighting to save their child.
Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy is genetic disorder characterized by progressive muscle degeneration and weakness. Children are usually diagnosed before 5 years old. By puberty, these children will likely be in wheelchairs. Many boys will die at a very young age.
Imagine being a parent who hears this diagnosis. What would you do? I would hope to have the strength that Jamesys dad has. He has been raising awareness every way possible. At this moment, he is in the Grand Canyon and will be running 170 mies in a week. I am his friend. I want to help. And, he needs your help as well. Please help me save this beautiful boys life. Any amount helps.
