Team JM at the Seattle Rock 'n' Roll Marathon

Welcome to Team JM

Welcome to the online headquarters of Team JM, a nationwide network of grassroots volunteers dedicated to finding a cure for JM. Team JM works locally and regionally to raise money for research while promoting community awareness of juvenile myositis diseases.

Team JM is made up of people touched in one way or another by JM. We are parents, grandparents, family and friends. Our members plan events that range from lemonade stands and garage sales to major marathons.
