Welcome to My Personal Page- Amanda Wenner
Please support me as I participate with the Race to End Duchenne team at the 2020 Rock 'n' Roll Washington DC Marathon on March 28, 2020. Together, we will go the distance to end Duchenne.
Duchenne is the most common fatal genetic disorder among children. To date, there is no cure or treatment to stop the progression of Duchenne. Those with Duchenne are truly in a race against time as their muscles deteriorate further each day. Please help us put an end to the devastating disorder by making a donation.
I am running this race to support my friend Karla and her 14 year old son Lucas who has Duchenne. Lucas is a great kid with a wonderful spirit. He goes to the high school that my Gavin will go to next year. Lucas gets around school with his "scooter" because he is not able to walk the distances. He needs help with steps and can only walk short distances in their home. I think about how hard it must be for him to see how easily the other kids walk from class to class. Lucas has wonderful parents, his mom Karla, my friend, is running the half marathon.
