About the FD Box Jump Challenge
Our son & brother, Stevie Schwartzberg, was never without challenges living with Familial Dysautonomia but he continued to push and challenge himself in countless different ways. One of those challenges was Stevie’s Standing Box Jumps. So in his memory, we bring you The Box Jump Challenge for FD. Please jump with us to raise awareness for this rare autonomic disease and to raise money to continue the mental health program established at the Dysautonomia Center at NYU Langone in Stevie’s memory.
How it works is simple:
1. Record yourself on your phone, start your video by introducing yourself, “Hello, I’m ___ and I am Jumping for FD!”
2. Jump & nominate 3 friends to jump!
3. Share on social media with the hashtags #boxjumpchallenge #jumpforFD
4. Most importantly, don’t forget to donate! Every dollar helps!
We encourage you to jump on any ‘box’ or surface you feel comfortable with, no jump is too big or too small. No need to wait to be nominated, jump on board! We support creativity and more importantly, safety first!
