Who We Support
Thank you for considering joining Tri for Jett 2016. This is an incredible cause and a great, fun group of people! Team members get free team merchandise and are invited to a big kickoff party in exchange for raising funds and awareness for the Jett Foundation. Team members are required to raise a minimum of $250 through an on online link provided by the Jett Foundation. For the past three years, most team members have found this to be an easy task by sending the link to family and friends. You can compete and register as an individual or register as part of your own relay team.
Please email Bill Burnett or Katie Cutler with any questions or go here and register using the comp discount code “JETTDUX2016”.
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.
