Please help us raise funds to support Justin and his family as they fight against a rare form of brain cancer. Justin is an amazing 12-year-old who loves the Detroit Tigers, singing and playing guitar, playing baseball and video games, and spending time with friends and family. He recently had most of the tumor removed and is currently undergoing treatment at St. Jude's Children's Hospital in Memphis, TN. These funds will help any medical/travel expenses the family has to endure. This family is truly one-of-a-kind and their strength comes from all of your support. Thank you so much in advance and let's help TEAM JUSTIN!

We've surpassed our goal! Thank you all for being so amazing, generous and supportive. Each and every donation helps. It means so much that you've all taken the time to share the link with your friends and family, make a donation, say a prayer and send your kind thoughts.

The spaghetti dinner last night was a huge success - thank you to those who worked so hard to pull it off and those who were able to make it and eat the delicious meal! We are looking forward to the next big fundraiser on December 4, 2013 at The New Rink in Shelby Township (23 and Van Dyke).

This event will begin at 6pm and is open to the public and all of Justin's supporters. The cost is $10 for skaters or free admission to non-skaters. There will be awesome raffle items, 50/50, a silent auction, arcade games, and SKATING!! Let's pack this place!! GO SUPERMAN GO!
