Jake Marrazzo has become a remarkable 16-year-old sophomore at Hudson High School. Jake has not let Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy keep him from pursuing his dreams of performing on Broadway, driving a car and helping to cure his disease.
Recently, he was chosen to be featured as one of WCVB Channel 5 Boston’s A+ Students. Antoinette Antonio came to Hudson High School to interview Jake. Please watch the interview with Jake below which was broadcasted on Wednesday, April 10, 2019.
In 2014, Jake’s family and friends created the 4 Jake Sake Foundation which helps families who have been affected by Duchenne. Every year since we have had a Millennium 5K road race to help raise money for the foundation. This year’s race is on May 19th at the Elks Club in Hudson, MA. We encourage you to participate in the race any way possible – from running the race, walking the course or just spending a great day with your family and ours. There will be a kid’s obstacle course race for the younger kids. We will have Star Wars stormtroopers on patrol as well as other characters who are very strong with the force. We hope to see you at the Millennium 5K on May 19th!
