Jared Wright is a wonderful 17 year old boy who has been diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD). Children with the disorder begin to show signs of muscle weakness as early as age 5. The disease gradually weakens the skeletal or voluntary muscles, those in the arms, legs and trunk. By the early teens or even earlier, the child’s heart and respiratory muscles may also be affected.
Nearly all children with DMD lose the ability to walk sometime between the ages of 7 and 12. In the teen years, activities involving the arms, legs or trunk require assistance or mechanical support. With your generous contribution to Jared’s Golf Benefit, you will not only have a fantastic day on the golf course and a wonderful dinner; you will also have the satisfaction of helping Jared and his family ease the financial burden of the medical equipment Jared will so desperately need to live a full and happy life.
Thank you so much for your support for one of the best charity golf tournaments Rochester NY has to offer!
