Together, we have put over ½ Million dollars into the hands of real science working to derail this beast. For that we are so, so humbled and grateful.
We are thrilled to bring Nerf Battle to North Royalton on March 30 from 1pm to 330 pm at North Royalton Field House. We are so grateful for the Schultz Family as they help us Host this great event.
This event is open to all ages and is a great way to get the cabin fever out! Click here to register for $10 fee.
Our Camo Run that once filled the streets of North Royalton is a bit smaller each year, so we (with the Kilbane Family) will host the Camo Run Lite again this year at Bonnie Park on April 13 ~ 5k Run or Walk and donations in lieu of a registration fee. Please join us, click and help keep this event relevant!
~ CLE RITE AID Baby~
Elsa and I will tackle the Rite Aid Half Marathon on May 19! If you’d like to join us in this Moving Spirit Adventure, please email me at email@example.com.
And drum roll please…….. July 13 is our awesome Picnic in the Park brought to you by our beautiful sponsors and the generosity of our community donating product, gift cards, sporting event tickets and money to make this a great summer night celebrating to derail duchenne.
We’d love ideas and hands to improve this event. We started our picnic when Owen was four years old and have catered to the younger crowd. Well now, they have all grown up and we are looking for ways to incorporate 12 to 16 year olds in the event. Even better, would be volunteers to help run that idea 😊 of course we will still have the great kids games, Jungle Terry, live music, tons of raffles, great food and German Central spirits!
It would mean so much for you to join us at one or all of our events! If the mood strikes you, please consider a donation to our JOA Picnic in the Park via our pledge card. Please share this request with your workplace, friends and neighbors, anyone that would open their heart to donate to JOA so that we can derail Duchenne
Thank you and God bless you!!!

The Boys are doing awesome! Rutger continues his job at ACE and is rocking out eleventh grade at NORO. We can’t believe how fast this kid grew up, before we know it he will be an adult! Ugh!
Owen has really settled into ninth grade at NORO. Though we say every night, 5:45 am comes fast – other than the drastic early rising – he is doing awesome. Great grades and he is even participating in a few social clubs. He continues with his weekly infusion of Exondys 51 (God send) and we continue to praise his stable health.
Wade is rounding out sixth grade with excellent grades and is pretty much always reading. He did have a great ski club season and we even got out to PA on a quick ski trip to visit our friends the Tomkovicz’s that moved last year.
Tony and I continue to be amazed at how fast the weeks fly by. Hoping to keep these boys young and at home as long as possible. We are blessed, truly truly blessed in so many ways!
We hope to see you this year ~ please be sure to say hi and give hugs!!
