Jim Ruetz is going on a 4,000+ mile, 12-day motorcycle trip across 12 states in the Cajun-Parrot Run to benefit CureDuchenne. He starts his journey on June 5 from Milwaukee, Wis. and is tentatively scheduled to arrive in Key West, Fla. (the Parrot part of the trip) on June 18. In route, he’ll stop in New Orleans (the Cajun part of the trip). 

“I’m definitely going to have to find an old football helmet without a face mask to do my best Jack Nicholson ‘Easy Rider’ pose,” said Ruetz.

This is not the first time Ruetz has traveled on the open road to benefit CureDuchenne. In 2011, Ruetz took a “bucket list” ride took to Alaska. He covered more than 7,000 miles, 10 states, provinces, and territories in the U.S. and Canada.  He helped raise $10,000 for CureDuchenne. 
 
Ruetz hopes to double the funds raised for Duchenne in 2011 to $20,000 for this year’s Cajun-Parrot Run.  Please support the Cajun-Parrot run by donating to any of the following levels: Pirate level ($100), Rage’n Cajun ($200) and Parrot Head ($300). Everyone who contributes at the pirate level or above will receive a “Cajun-Parrot Run” t-shirt and will automatically be entered in a drawing for the Clay Matthews signed Packers’ Jersey. Click here to donate.
 
“I hope you’ll join me again this year as we raise funds and awareness for CureDuchenne,” said Ruetz.  “I’ll be blogging during the trip and will definitely continue my search for great Irish pubs in the U.S. where the perfect pint of Guinness can be found.”
