JAR of Hope was established in 2013 by Jim & Karen Raffone in an effort to save their son James’ life and prevent other families from having to endure the pain of losing their children. I will be joining Jim and Team Jamesy on a number of events this year to help raise awareness. Events including Marathons from NYC to Canada, to a 170 mile self-supported ultra-marathon across the desert and up the Grand Canyon. I do these events, because these children can’t. I do these events to help Jim, his family, but most of all, Jamesy and other children inflicted by this horrific disease. My hope is to help raise awareness and funds toward this foundation’s mission to find a cure.

Please consider a tax deductible donation to help fill our JAR with hope.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
