For the past 5 years, Firefighters on a Mission has been running marathons, bringing awareness and helping those with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. Our mission began in 2015, when firefighter Tim Petz and his wife learned their son Logan had this terrible disease. At the time of his diagnosis, the Petz family knew they couldn’t sit around and wait for a cure, they knew they needed to take action. Inspired by their efforts a team of firefighters, refusing to let the Petz family fight alone, established Firefighters on a Mission.
Sunday, February 9, 2020 will be a memorable 5th race for Team Logan & Firefighters on a Mission, because it will be the first race for 8-year-old Logan Petz. He will be guided through the streets of Miami for 13.1 miles, crossing the finish line with his dad!
The goal in most every race is to cross the finish line in the shortest amount of time. With Logan and all those fighting against Duchenne, that goal is everything – because when it comes to finding a cure, these children are truly in a race against time.
And while the Miami Marathon will undoubtedly be full of special moments for the Petz family and Team Logan, the most impactful will be with those we meet along the way. If you feel compelled to do so, you can help Team Logan & Firefighters on a Mission #ExtinguishDuchenne, by making a donation and/or sharing our story. All funds raised here will help Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy, going directly toward research for a cure for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy and is 100% tax deductible.
On behalf of Team Logan and Firefighters on a Mission thank you! We promise to continue the fight until we have a cure.
With love and gratitude,
