My name is Bill McCarthy, in September 2017 I will be returning to the Grand to Grand Ultra Marathon in Kanab, Utah. I did not finish this year due to an injury. At the start of this years G2G James Raffone talked about Team Jamesy and JAR of Hope. James talked about his son Jamesy and his battle with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. It had a profound effect on me. I’m a father of a healthy 20 year old son. The thought of my son having such a difficult and presently incurable disease is something I think about everyday day now. I knew I had to be involved in the fight against this devastating disease. So I’m going back for personal reasons but also for a much bigger goal. A healthy 20 year old Jamesy Raffone. I’ll be a member of Team Jamesy this time raising money. The only fix is research, which cost money. So please help.
