JettRide: 750 miles of hope for families

POINT PLEASANT BEACH — Around a dozen cyclists biked halfway across the country, from Ohio to the borough, to spread one message: There is hope for children with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. “This ride is just all about awareness,” said Danielle Edwards, the community outreach and engagement coordinator for the Jett Foundation, which raises awareness of, and funds for, research to help youngsters affected by the terminal condition. On July 28, nine riders participating in the JettRide arrived in the borough and made their way down Arnold Avenue to the ocean. The 750-mile journey was part fundraiser and part public awareness campaign.
