Family and Friends
Every day, kids and adults are diagnosed with muscular dystrophy, ALS and related diseases that take away the most basic freedoms — the freedom to walk, talk, hug and even breathe.
A few years ago, friends of ours learned their youngest son, Archer, one of James' best buddies, was diagnosed Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. I've signed up to complete the New York Road Runners United Airlines NYC Half with Archer's parents, Teryn and Matt Kendall, and the Muscular Dystrophy Association's MDA Team Momentum in the hopes of helping Archer and many others get those freedoms back.
As a member of MDA Team Momentum, I’m dedicating my miles, muscles and personal finish line to helping kids and adults living with muscular dystrophy, ALS and related muscle-debilitating diseases live longer and grow stronger. Every step I take while training for and racing will help MDA fund groundbreaking research to accelerate treatments and cures and provide care and support for families who are counting on us.
This is where you come in. Your donation will help save and improve the lives of individuals with muscular dystrophy and the families who love them. Thanks in part to MDA Team Momentum participants and donors, MDA anticipates more new treatments in development during the next five years than in the previous five decades combined. Let’s keep and build this momentum. Please consider making a donation to support me in my upcoming race today. Thank you in advance for your support!
