Abby Carroll is a 16-year-old who is riding in the JettRide this year.
This will be Abby’s second year doing the JettRide. Duchenne is a progressive muscle disorder that affects mostly males, but some females. DMD is the number one fatal genetic disorder diagnosed during childhood today.
Her mom has been working at the Jett Foundation for about 9 years during, which time she has had the chance to meet Jett and learn a lot about Duchenne. When Abby was 9 she was able to go to the JettRide finish line in New Jersey and since then she has wanted to become a JettRider.
She is doing the JettRide for Jett, Cade, Baeden, Tanner, Cal, and all the boys she has met over the past few years. Last year was the JettRide hardest thing she ever did, but she got through it by just thinking about Jett and the other boys with Duchenne deal with on a daily basis.
Abby is working on raising $3000.00; you can still support her journey by donating on her FirstGiving fundraising page.
