Hudson mother, son raising money for specialized running chair

HUDSON — During a run along the rail trail earlier this spring, Jake Marrazzo spurred his mother on as she started training for an upcoming triathlon.

“Faster,” he said as she pushed him in a mobility stroller. “I want to feel the wind in my hair.”

As a casual jogger, Sheryl Marrazzo had a quick answer for her 15-year-old son.

“I’m going as fast as I can,” she said.

Jake, a freshman at Hudson High School, has been unable to walk since April 2015 after being diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy in January 2011 — a few days before his 8th birthday. The disease is a genetic disorder characterized by progressive muscle degeneration and weakness, according to the Muscular Dystrophy Association.
