My name is Izzy and I am an 8 year old gymnast from CT on a quest to help find a cure for a rare muscle wasting disease called Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.
In 2013, my cousin Jamesy was diagnosed with this awful disease and soon after is when JAR Of Hope and the “10 push ups for 10 dollars” challenge came about. Due to the way this disease is inherited, primarily boys are affected, and most of these boys will never be able to do a push up. With the amount of training I do everyday I thought I’d join in on this mission to raise awareness and help fund research for this incurable illness.
Everyday for 60 days I will be doing push-ups and posting it on my social media accounts in hopes to reach my goal of $500 for the JAR Of Hope foundation. Please help me reach my goal and knockout Duchenne!! No donation is too little and greatly appreciated. #teamjamesy #knockoutduchenne #jarofhope #dmd
