My name is Sascha Sandtner, I am 40 years old working as a Senior IT Consultant. In September 2017 I will be returning to the Grand to Grand Ultra Marathon in Kanab, Utah, because I did not finish in 2016 due to an injury while hitting a rock very badly while running.
I met James Raffone during last years G2G and he told me about his son Jamesy, suffering from Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. Supporting James’ mission finding cure for his son was my new aim and I made it a personal thing, because I am a father of a one year old son too and I feel with James.
My motivation is unbreakable and my will is beyond the 170 miles line. So it was clear there is no way not to support JAR of Hope. Everyday I See my little son playing and running around being healthy is the melting pot of motivation to support the ones in need as this I consider the message and meaning beyond everything we just believe is important in life.
Going back to the Grand Canyon is not only an event. It is a personal statement, a war, a message, support and a goal worth to fight for and to find cure. Being a warrior and member of Team Jamesy raising money for cure is my obligation. Please support us raising money saving a 7 years old boys life and become a part of something bigger as a life saver. We need everybody!
