In 2001, Christine and Stephen McSherry started Jett Foundation after learning the devastating news that their then five-year-old son Jett had Duchenne muscular dystrophy.

The McSherry family was determined to save Jett and the thousands of boys like him by establishing a foundation dedicated to funding DMD research that will ultimately cure this deadly disease.

The Jett Foundation has raised over $16 million dollars for promising biomedical Duchenne research and shifted its primary focus to direct service programming for families impacted by Duchenne and other neuromuscular disorders. Jett Foundation has established one-of-a-kind direct service programs and educational activities that have a proven track record of influence and meets the needs of affected families from every city and town, regardless of location, financial situation, or capabilities.

In 2007, Christine McSherry, founder of the Jett Foundation started JettRide, a cross country cycle tour for teens to spread awareness, unite families and inspire others to fight against Duchenne muscular dystrophy. JettRiders consist of teenage siblings, relatives and friends of boys living with Duchenne.

Jett Ride 2021 Lebanon, PA

The Jett Ride is typically a 2-3 week cross country ride, spanning 6 states and biking 800 miles.

It was cancelled for the second year in a row due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, but the Hains family hosted their own one day JETT RIDE in Levi's hometown of Lebanon, PA.

 

This year's Jett Riders raised $7,000 for the Jett Foundation, a non-profit that assists Duchenne families in need. Once again, it was a huge success!

Thank you to all the riders, friends, and family for supporting this great event. 

Jett Ride 2020 Lebanon, PA

In 2020 this group of Jett Riders raised $10,000 for the Jett Foundation.

In 2019, before the COVID Pandemic, the JettRiders rode 700 miles from Sandusky, OH to Point Pleasant Beach, NJ in 2 weeks, and through 5 states.

 

The best part about the ride is that the riders visited many families along their route that are affected by Duchenne to bring them the gift of hope.
