We would like to thank our friends at Cure Dale’s Duchenne for partnering with the Jett Giving Fund once again in 2019 as a Freedom Sponsor with a gift of $100,000. Jett Foundation could not provide the community with much-needed accessibility equipment without dedicated community partners like Cure Dale’s Duchenne–we extend a heartfelt thanks!
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. While they continue to support and fund research, they also acknowledge the incredible need that families impacted by Duchenne face day to day.
“Rick and I are so excited to hear that these families are getting the equipment they need and that Cure Dale’s Duchenne is able to sustain this vital program in our community,” said Lelia Ginder. “We feel strongly about supporting families in giving their boys what they need to live their lives now.”
Since launching the Jett Giving Fund in 2017, Jett Foundation has gifted 14 accessible vans, one rotating medical bed, four stairlifts, and one mobility scooter. This year, with the support of generous partners like Cure Dale’s Duchenne, we plan to gift an additional 12 accessible vans and one stairlift to children, young people, and families affected by Duchenne.
If you or someone you know would like to join Cure Dale’s Duchenne by supporting the Jett Giving Fund program and our 2019 Jett Giving Fund families, please let us know! We cannot do this work alone.
