What is the JettRide?
This summer, 20 teens from all over the country will forgo a summer at the beach or by the pool, to climb on their bikes for the experience of a lifetime - all the while hoping to make a difference in someone else's life.
The Jett Foundation, will once again organize a bike-a-thon across the country to raise funds and awareness for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (Duchenne) - the most common lethal disorder diagnosed during childhood today. The 2010 JettRide, is a follow-up to the 2007 JettRide, in which a group of 24 young people cycled across the country, riding on behalf of someone who could not ride themselves. 2007 riders experienced the opportunity of a life-time, exploring the country, spreading awareness and raising funds for Duchenne.
"When the Jett Foundation decided to be a part of the 2007 JettRide, we never imagined the life changing experience the kids would have or the amazing impact they would make across the country. Our JettRiders set out to cross the country with the same determination that those touched by Duchenne show on a daily basis. We are very excited to once again organize this amazing journey." says Christine McSherry, Founder of the Jett Foundation.
Who will be riding?
JettRide 2010 will be made up of 20 young people and their parents/leaders/friends from across the US who will ride on behalf of someone they know living with or affected by Duchenne. The bikers will raise $4,000 each, for continued research towards finding improved treatments and care.
