The Jumping Jack Golf Tournament was started six years ago in an attempt to save the life of our now 8 year-old son, named Jack. It came after hearing the news that the genetic disorder he had, Duchenne muscular dystrophy would disable our lively, wonderful child by age ten, and take his life in his early twenties. The heartbreak and determination became apparent to all those around us as we quickly committed to increase the awareness of DMD and support the research that will one day realize a cure for the disease.
Duchenne is the most common lethal childhood genetic disorder affecting one in 3,500 boys worldwide. There is no acceptable cure or treatment for the disorder.
All proceeds go to Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy to help End Duchenne. www.endduchenne.org
If you do not golf but would like to participate, please join us for a special lunch and the silent auction. Ask us for details.
