Honor Justin thornton
Justin was an incredible young man that was taken from us too soon. In honor of him we have combined some of the things he loved to create The JT Foundation. He was passionate about helping others, loved bringing people together, could have eaten spaghetti for every meal, and gave back when he could. So in remembrance of him we will eat spaghetti together on his birthday and raise money for a cure for the disease that cut his time short.
