This past weekend our friend, training partner, and coach Justin Newton (aka Tin Man) was involved in an accident that involved severe burning to his hands. I have enclosed pictures of the damage to Justin's hands that show the severity of this accident. Justin is currently at UC Health in the Burn Intensive Care Unit (BICU) undergoing treatment for his injuries.
As you all know Justin is a purple belt in jiu-jitsu at Easton Castle Rock. He also teaches jiu-jitsu and kick boxing classes. His job at Easton Castle Rock is where he makes his money to pay rent, pay medical bills, eat, etc.... Without the use of his hands he will be without a paycheck and will struggle to make ends meet until he can heal back to full strength and get back on the mats to helping others better themselves.
I started this campaign to help Justin out while he is without funds to aid in paying for medical bills, food, rent, and any additional living expenses he may need. The same everyday expenses we all have.
Anything you can contribute to help Justin out will help even if it is a $1. So let's gather around and help one of our own to get him through the tough time and help him get back on his feet to doing what he loves and that helping all of us become better jiu jitsu practitioners, kick boxers, and just healthier people.
