Personal Info

Donation Total: $20

I will be running in the NYC Marathon this year as part of JAR of Hope’s Team Jamesy. Our team will be running through the five boroughs to raise awareness and funds for Jamesy Raffone and those living with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. This extremely rare disease lacks the funding needed to find a cure and this fundraiser can help save the life of little Jamesy. No one has ever survived Duchenne and most affected will need to be in a wheelchair by their early teens with a heartbreaking life expectancy between 20-25 years.

As a team we have the muscle to push through this marathon and fight against this disease for Jamesy. Progress is being made, but we need to push on and help support this family in their fight. I’m asking, and hoping that you would please join us in the fight to cure Duchenne by donating to Team Jamesy and supporting me as I tackle 26.2 miles to make a difference for Jamesy and the JAR of Hope.

    Thank you for bringing awareness to this heartbreaking disease and for taking the initiative to reach out for a cure! Your story is very touching, and it is easy to see how much love and compassion you have for the Raffone family and Jamesy. I wish you the best of luck in the marathon and if you can, give Jamesy a big hug and tell him he is amazing and so strong! I am rooting for you both!
    Sending love and good thoughts from FedEx Prov terminal 0029/3028!
