.Emily Aronson – NYC Marathon 2018
My name is Emily Aronson. I’m originally from Long Island, NY, but now live in Boca Raton, FL with my three beautiful teenagers. I’ve been on a personal health and fitness journey, recently participating in a weight loss challenge (HHS — “Happy, Healthy, Stronger”) that helped me lose 30 pounds.
The next stop on my journey will be the New York City Marathon, where I’ll be running alongside JAR of Hope and Team Jamesy.
JAR of Hope is a nonprofit organization with the mission to find a cure for Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD), a terminal disease that is diagnosed in childhood. Through awareness campaigns and events, the organization raises funds for clinical research and treatment.
Like many others, I didn’t know what DMD was. But after learning about it, I knew I had to do my part to help those suffering from the devastating effects. Please join the fight to eliminate this disease by supporting me, and the rest of Team Jamesy, as we prepare to take on the 26.2 mile run.
I’m hopeful that we can make a difference together
