Johnny’s Jog

johhny's jog

Johnny’s Jog for Charity is inspired by the short but powerful life of Johnny Moran. Johnny was born with Wieacker Wolff Syndrome, a rare debilitating condition that affects the central and peripheral nervous systems. Johnny’s spirit of strength and love rose far above his many limitations. His positive attitude toward life affected all who came to know him.

Johnny’s Jog for Charity is a 501 C-3 tax exempt charity.

One stable owner, Shauna Perry of...
