Hi Everyone!!

This summer, I will be participating in a life changing adventure & I need your help!  I will be participating in the JettRide across America!  For almost 2 weeks, I will cycle 700 miles, from Kansas City, MO to Cincinnati, OH!!!  I will ride for boys who cannot, boys with Duchenne muscular dystrophy (Duchenne).

Over the course of 9 weeks, our team will bike through 13 states and over 40 cities/towns.  The ride will take off from San Francisco, CA on June 26, 2010 and will end in Point Pleasant, NJ on August, 27, 2010.  I will be joining the team as a leader/rider and ride the 3rd leg of the journey!

I will be riding for Jett McSherry, a young friend of mine who is battling Duchenne.  Duchenne is the most common lethal genetic disorder diagnosed during childhood today, affecting approximately 1 out of every 3,500 boys.  Duchenne causes loss of muscle function and independence, there is no known treatment or cure for Duchenne.

I am participating in this event, not only because unlike boys with Duchenne, I CAN, but also because the Duchenne community needs much continued support to move ahead with urgently needed research and clinical trials.

With your help, I will ride for those who cannot.  Each mile will bring us closer to finding a cure for Duchenne muscular dystrophy!
