Welcome to Liberty Middle School!
Jump for JACK hopes to raise money, awareness for rare disease
Jeremy Lieberman wanted to do something to help his cousin Jack, who is one of 601 children in the world to suffer from Familial Dysutomania.
On Tuesday, April 23 and Wednesday, April 24 Liberty Middle and High School students will jump for a cause during gym class. Jump for Jack, a fundraiser organized by Liberty seventh-grader Jeremy Lieberman, will raise money and awareness for a rare disease called Familial Dysutomania.
The event holds deep significance for Jeremy – his six year old cousin Jack suffers from this debilitating illness. Jack was the 601st person in the world to be diagnosed with Familial Dysautomania. Those who suffer from it cannot jump or run (although according to Jeremy, his cousin would love to do both). Jack is also unable to control his internal body temperature, which makes each day a danger for him.
With the support of the Liberty Middle School Student Council and physical education teachers Phil Fanning and Hazel Yaun, Jeremy and the student body will jump in honor of Jack this week. At the beginning of gym classes, students will jump rope and do jumping jacks for as long as they can against pedometers. Pledges gathered by students from family and community members in the past few weeks will be donated to Familial Dysutomania research and Jeremy and his classmates hope that more people will be aware of the disease and help to find a cure.
“My cousin Jack is my role model,” says Jeremy. “He smiles every day, no matter what. I feel the need to help find a cure for my cousin because it’s not fair that he can’t do the same things that other kids his age can do.”
If you are interested in donating, please call the Liberty Middle School at 845-292-5400 ext. 2302 and ask if you can contribute to “Jump for Jack.”
