The Mission

The Road 2 Here

In May 2017, four ‘Camino Pilgrims’ will walk the ‘Way of St. James’, a historical 780km (almost 500 mile) journey beginning in the French side of the Pyrenees across northern Spain to Santiago de Compostela.  Each day of their 30+ day pilgrimage will be dedicated to one of our ‘Roadies’, children who suffer from Cystic Fibrosis and Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. All CF and DMD Roadies will receive donations from corporate and private sponsors, bringing much needed financial support and public awareness to their fight.

Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy

Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) is a severe genetic illness causing muscle weakness and muscle loss, typically in boys. There is no cure.

About Rae

Raelyn is honoring a promise she made to her son when he was 4 years old and coughing all night.  He begged her to take his cough away and she promised she would do everything in her power to help do that.

She is a mother to two amazing boys, including one with cystic fibrosis, and wife to one hard working man. She loves playing sports, traveling, and fundraising for a cure, but most of all spending time with friends and family. Nothing makes her heart happier than trying to make a difference in the world and people’s lives.
