Personal Info

Donation Total: $10

My name is John Korinek, friends call me Jake, I am a FDNY EMT. I feel honored to be asked to participate in the G2G ultra marathon with JAR of Hope, A/K/A Team Jamesy.
Jamesy has a rare condition called Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) that effects one in 3500 boys. DMD is a severe muscle wasting disease that leaves most boys wheelchair bound by age 12, and there is currently no cure.

To raise awareness we are running 169 miles through the Grand Canyon over the course of 7 days. I have never faced anything so challenging, yet it pales in comparison to what these children and their families endure on a daily basis.
My goal is to raise awareness and at least $10,000 for JAR of Hope, to help find treatment and a cure. Every penny helps! Even if you are unable to donate please help by sharing the link.
