With gratitude, we are thrilled to share the support of our newest partner, Cure Dale’s Duchenne. Joining us as a Freedom Sponsor, the Cure Dale’s Duchenne Fund, managed by the Community Foundation of North Central Florida, has designated a $100,000 grant for our Jett Giving Fund program. The Jett Giving Fund is a financial assistance program that helps families to purchase vitally important assistive and medical equipment such as accessible vans, stairlifts, and more.

Rick and Lelia Ginder founded Cure Dale’s Duchenne soon after their youngest son, Dale, was diagnosed with Duchenne muscular dystrophy at the age of six in April 2008. Since Dale’s life changing diagnosis, Cure Dale’s Duchenne has focused their support towards research efforts for Duchenne muscular dystrophy. While they continue to support and fund research, they also acknowledge the incredible need that families impacted by Duchenne face day to day.

“We like the idea of making lives better right now. Let's help them now,” said Lelia Ginder. “The Jett Giving Fund helps families get what they need at this very moment. We want to partner with Jett Foundation to give not only equipment, but independence and freedom.”

The generous support of Cure Dale’s Duchenne makes it possible for us to transform lives through the Jett Giving Fund and make day-to-day challenges of living with Duchenne a little bit easier.

We cannot do this work alone. More families need our help. To become a sponsor of the Jett Giving Fund, visit
