Event Description

The Jumping Jack Golf Tournament was started seven years ago in an attempt to save the life of our now 9 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.

We have chosen Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy (PPMD) to be the beneficiary of the golf tournament again this year. PPMD has made great strides in the DMD community by funding high impact research, fighting to create standards of care, and providing up to date information to families regarding DMD treatment and care.

Not a golfer? Join us for dinner and the silent auction!!! You can also participate by donating items for the silent auction and/or volunteering the day of the event.

* This years tournament will be the Monday following PPMD's annual conference in Denver, so we all have a great chance to have some fun following the conference!

We are hoping to have auction items from around the country, possibly even world, donated by DMD families. If you are willing to donation a item, basket, etc. that represents you home, please email me at guygo@comcast.net

Thanks so much and we hope to see you all at the Dinner and Auction on June 28th!
