Riding for a Reason: JettRide 2020 Announced!

At Jett Foundation, we work hard as a leading nonprofit in the Duchenne space to extend and enrich the lives of individuals impacted by Duchenne muscular dystrophy and other neuromuscular disorders. Our annual JettRide is one of the most exciting and dynamic opportunities for our community to come together as we fulfill this mission together.

In 2007, we established JettRide, a cross country cycling tour for siblings, cousins, and friends of those impacted by Duchenne to spread awareness, raise funds, and inspire others to fight against Duchenne. Each year, Jett Foundation gets to deliver the gift of hope through JettRide to patients and families impacted by Duchenne by having the JettRiders meet with and spend time along the route.

We are happy to present you with our 2020 JettRide route:

Date: July 8 – 25, 2020
(subject to change)
Starting Line: Nashville, Tennessee
Finish Line: Hershey Park, Pennsylvania
4 States | 850 Miles

including stops in:

NASHVILLE | LOUISVILLE | CINCINNATI | COLUMBUS | PITTSBURGH | HERSHEY PARK

and more!

We are actively looking for teens and families impacted by Duchenne to be a part of our ride this summer and help us finalize our route. Please let us know if you are close to any of the locations above; we would love to have our JettRiders visit!

There are lots of opportunities to help to support our 2020 JettRide! Here are just a few ways:

  1. BECOME A JETTRIDER!
    Know a sibling, cousin or friend looking to make a difference this summer in the lives of those impacted by Duchenne? We’re still looking for more teens to join our team; have them fill out a JettRide application today by clicking here!
  1. HOST THE JETTRIDERS FOR A NIGHT.
    Do you live in one of the cities or towns we’re riding through? JettRiders often stay with host families who are impacted by Duchenne. They learn a lot from host families and, in turn, you help us bring this incredible journey to life. It is super easy to host the riders and is a ton of fun!
  2. MEET UP WITH THE RIDERS FOR A FUN ACTIVITY ON THEIR JOURNEY.
    When our riders aren’t cycling, they are having fun taking in the local activities along the route. Meet up with the JettRiders at a local park, ice cream shop, pizza shop, etc. to get to know our riders and why they are inspired to ride.
  1. CELEBRATE WITH US AT THE START OR FINISH LINE.
    You bring your family and we’ll bring the party! Be there to cheer on our JettRiders as they start up or round out their inspiring journeys to raise awareness for Duchenne.
  2. SPREAD THE WORD!
    Help us alert people in your local community – through social media, connections with leaders at the state and local level and with your friends and family – so more are aware of what we are doing and why we are doing it!

By participating in JettRide with Jett Foundation, you’ve committed to more than just a bike ride. You are now a part of a community dedicated to changing lives and ensuring no one has to face Duchenne alone.
