Jackson's JettRide 2011

Hi Everyone!

 

This summer, I will be participating in a life changing adventure & I need your help!  I will be participating in the JettRide 2011! I'm on a Roll to Fight Duchenne!!

 

For 1 month, I will cycle 1,500 miles, from Minnesota, MN to Point Pleasant Beach, NJ!!!  I will ride for boys who cannot, boys with Duchenne muscular dystrophy (Duchenne).

Over the course of 4 weeks, our team will bike through 8 states and over 100 cities/towns.  The ride takes off from MN on July 5, 2011 and will arrive in NJ on August 5, 2011.

I will be riding for Jett McSherry, my big brother, who is battling Duchenne muscular dystrophy.  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!

If you would like to sponsor my efforts, you may do so here!!  If you would rather send a check, please make it payable to the Jett Foundation, 42 Elm Street, Suite 3, Kingston, MA 02364, with my name & JettRide written in the Memo.  The Jett Foundation will issue you a tax deductible receipt for your contribution.

Many thanks for your support!! Don't forget to forward this to anyone you think might want to support me as well!
