Disney Dopey Run 2015

I, James Raffone was challenged to run this incredible race on 11/20/15. Mr. Daniel Garafolo challenged me to run this race in hope to raise more awareness to fight Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. Mr. Garafolo also has a son Danny who suffers from Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. Dan planned on running the race but due to Danny’s progression Dan wanted to be by his son’s side. Little Danny’s progression is at the point where he’s losing the use of his arms. Instead of Dan spending less time with his son he asked me if I would run in his place. Please sponsor me $1.00/mile. ($46.20) It will be an honor to run for Team Danny in Disney. This race is a 4-day venture, it will have me running a 5k/10k/Half Marathon & Full Marathon. The boys who suffer from this progressive muscle wasting disease need to know we will support them no matter how crazy the feat may sound. We have been blessed with the ability to breathe, by the age of 18 our boys will lose their ability to simply breathe. I promise to do my best for all those who support me for this crazy race.
