Duane Hespell Fundraiser: Race To End Duchenne: Chicago Marathon
Hi friends and family!
Well, here's a first for me.
It should be no surprise that in discovering my passion for the "run" and "endurance" community over the past 10 years, I have been driven, mostly, by my own desire for all the positives this lifestyle provides for me, personally...and there are many.
The truth is that there are those we love who may have been dealt a hand in life that, seemingly, keeps them from discovering many of these joys for themselves. My wife (Becky) and I have been faced with this reality every day for 26 years as we have journeyed alongside our son, Trevor, in battling against the forces of Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy that would want, not only to keep him from discovering these "joys" of adventure in his life, but to slowly take away his independence altogether.
I have great respect for, but little experience in, the world of fund-raising, but a clear opportunity presented itself as I began to research the following event, discovering a certain organization's participation.
Please support me as I participate with the Race to End Duchenne team at the 2020 Bank of America Chicago Marathon on October 11, 2020. Together, we will go the distance to end Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.
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.
If you prefer, you may also mail a check, made payable to Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy, to:
Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy
401 Hackensack Avenue, 9th Floor
Hackensack, NJ 07601
(Please make a note on the check that it is in honor of Duane Hespell/Chicago Marathon)
All funds raised will benefit Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy (parentprojectmd.org) and go directly toward researching a cure. Your contribution is 100% tax deductible.
Thank you for your support!
