JettRide 2013 Finale and Thank you!

Posted on August 08, 2013

Today summed up the 2013 JettRide. Like always we got ready to ride and started out ahead of schedule. We rode really fast, an average of 16 mph, for the 55 miles from Marlton to Point Pleasant.

We were escorted for a few miles by the Point Pleasant bicycle cops. We met in a small parking lot downtown to wait for the firetrucks to start the parade. In the parking lot we met all the riders’ families and a few of the JettRiders from previous years.

Jett and Tanner led the parade down the street in their chairs. Ryan and Braedan rode in the Firetruck while Kyle rode in the duet with his dad. After dipping our front tires into the Atlantic we took a long relaxing swim to celebrate. We had a great barbeque lunch on the boardwalk and gave medals to all the riders and boys affected.

So with that the 2013 JettRide was over. We met 15 different boys and spread DMD awareness across 900 miles of the United States. Thank you for always following our journey! Your support is greatly appreciated and the JettRide would not be possible without it. Thank you all once again for all the donations and support! Only with your tremendous support can we accomplish these feats.

Sincerely,

The JettRiders

This morning we woke up to a thunderstorm. The terrible weather and the traffic forced us to shuttle for the day. The day was spent organizing the trailer and shopping at Barnes and Noble.

For dinner we went to an Italian restaurant where we stuffed ourselves with pizzas calzones and mozzerela sticks. We are all very excited to ride into Point Pleasant tomorrow. This trip has been filled with great adventures and stories that will forever be branded into our minds. We have met 1 outstanding man and 9 amazing kids that have decided to put their conditions to the side and live their lives. They are the most fun loving kids you will ever meet and we are so glad to have been able to hang out with them.

We have also been treated like royalty in every town we stayed. The JettRide would not be possible without the many generous churches and towns across the US. Thank you so much everyone we can’t wait to see everyone tomorrow!
