Team Tri for Jett is a triathlon team that races to raise funds and awareness for the Jett Foundation, a local organization devoted to finding a cure for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. The organization was founded in honor of Jett McSherry of Pembroke who at age 20 is in the fight of his life with a disease that has an average mortality rate of around 18. Huge strides are being made thanks in large part to efforts of his mother, Jett Foundation Executive Director Christine McSherry. Now, Jett and others like him are in a clinical trial on a drug that is showing effectiveness in slowing down this horrible disease. Funds from Tri for Jett are critical to this effort.
Please email Bill Burnett with any questions how to help join and/or support this team.
