Edgewise Therapeutic Renews Support of Jett Programs in 2024

May 2, 2024


We are thrilled to highlight our partnership with Edgewise Therapeutics, a longtime sponsor of Jett Foundation. Edgewise’s renewed sponsorship in 2024 allows Jett Foundation to successfully deliver its mission to the Duchenne muscular dystrophy community in the year ahead.

Edgewise is a biopharmaceutical company developing muscle-targeted therapeutics for severe muscle disorders, including Duchenne and Becker. For over four years, they have supported Jett Foundation programming, with a special focus on Jett Awareness Days and Family Workshops. The team at Edgewise also participates in Jett’s National Challenge and Falmouth Road Race each year.

“Jett Foundation is a wonderful partner. Attend an event and you will see the smiles that their programs provide to families impacted by Duchenne,” says Edgewise representative Sarah Tencer. “Edgewise values Jett Foundation’s passion and commitment to serving the Duchenne and Becker community. Partnering with Jett provides great opportunities to connect with and build relationships within these communities.”

The company is currently advancing a set of clinical trials of EDG-5506, an oral pill intended to be taken alone or in combination with other therapies, to determine if the protection of fast fibers improves muscle health while preventing further muscle degeneration and slowing disease progression in individuals with Duchenne and Becker. 

“Jett Foundation has considerable depth of programming, including in local communities, providing families with access to information, resources, and support which is critical in managing a life with Duchenne. We are very proud to support Jett!” 

Please join us in thanking Edgewise for their generous support!
