Welcome to Tiffany's fundraising page
In January I participated in my first marathon as part of the Race to End Duchenne Team. Race to End Duchenne raises money to end Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, a degenerative muscle disease. Running a marathon was brutal! As soon as I finished I said I would never do it again, but a little bit of discomfort is the least I can do to support a cure for DMD. Please join me in the fight to end Duchenne.
Duchenne muscular dystrophy is the most common fatal genetic disorder among children. Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) affects 1 in every 3,500 boys, progressively weakening all of their muscles. Those with Duchenne are truly in a race against time.
*At the age of 7, they typically lose their ability to walk
*In their early teens, they lose the ability to move their arms
*By their later teens, they are most likely unable to move anything
*By their mid twenties, their heart and lungs fail
*The mortality rate is 100%
I run in memory of Danny Garofalo. He lost his battle in July 2018 at the young age of 16. His smile, strength, courage, and sense of humor were contagious. Danny created a bucket list that sadly he did not get a chance to complete. But he inspired me to check off running a marathon from my bucket list. I am honored to run with his family and friends as we Race to End Duchenne.
Please help us put an end to this devastating disorder by making a donation and supporting my race. Your 100% tax-deductible gift will make a difference in the lives of so many! All funds raised will benefit Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy (parentprojectmd.org) and go directly toward researching a cure.
