2022 Disney Half Marathon fund raiser
This is my 17th year supporting Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy’s (PPMD) marathon. My hope is to run in Orlando with the PPMD team. I thank you for again considering sponsoring me. With your help, I hope to help fund promising research.
Should all go as planned, I will run Disney’s Half Marathon (13.1 miles) January 8th, 2022. In the event this becomes a virtual event (like was done in 2020), I will run the half marathon locally. I pay my expenses to travel and run as well as my fundraising expenses to ensure your donation is spent on research. PPMD is equally as frugal in how they use their resources and are rated 90.7% by Charity Navigator, an organization which assesses non-profit credibility and achieving their goals.
Your generosity helps fund important medical research to treat people affected by Duchenne. PPMD funds research that leads to the development of drugs to treat Duchenne approved by the Food and Drug Administration. Duchenne is a complex genetic condition affecting every muscle, including the heart. Scientists are testing approved drugs and new therapies to control weakness and improve survival. There are over 20 drugs in human clinical studies to improve outcomes for those living with Duchenne. My family is hopeful research will bring effective treatments.
On behalf of Patrick and in memory of Matthew, thank you so much for your continued support.
