Since its inception in 1996, the Jason's Friends Foundation has raised more than $5 million, according to its founders. It has been a constant source of support, a constant pillar in the community of Casper and now, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Wyoming are honoring the Jason's Friends Foundation, specifically its founders - Jason's parents- Rocky and Lisa Eades.
I've had the honor and privilege to work with Jason's Friends Foundation over the past 15 years. The foundation got started to help families with kids fighting childhood cancers and other catastrophic diseases. Lisa & Rocky Eades know the pain of losing a child to this dreadful disease.
The party with a purpose continues this week as Thankful Thursday continues to support local charities. This week we are raising money for the Casper Snow Gypsies of the Wyoming State Snowmobile Association.
