St.Jude JBird Team

Over $130,000 Raised for St. Jude Hospital

After losing their son Justin Townsend to Glioblastoma-Multiforme, a form of highly aggressive brain cancer, the family started attending St. Jude walks and formed Team J-Bird. What began as a small group of family and friends attending a local walk has now prospered into a community. A community determined to help in the fight against childhood cancer. In 2022 the members of Team JBird decided they wanted to do more, so they founded 13Forever - a nonprofit to give back to numerous cancer organizations and research facilities.
