For those of you who don’t know me I am a 43 year old immigrant from Youghal, County Cork Ireland and have been here since 1978 and I am a Local 1 plumber from Marine Park, Brooklyn, NY. I met the Raffone family through my in laws Anthony & Maria Maniscalco. My family has always been on board to help JAR of Hope. I realize every day how lucky I am. I stepped up to the starting line of the NYCM in 2016 and I ran my first marathon in honor of all the children suffering from DMD. Thinking about James Raffone and what he does on a daily basis for not only his son but all the children suffering from DMD I crossed the finish line with a sense of accomplishment. It is 2018 and I count my blessings every day and with that being said I am going to run the NYCM again!!!!! For the same reasons!!!! Because there is no cure!!!! For all the children suffering, for JAR of Hope and the hope to one day find a cure. I hope through the support of my family, friends & colleagues I can raise enough money to help continue the fight for a cure & awareness for JAR of HOPE and this devastating disease!!! THANK YOU
