Mitzvah Project by Harrison

A couple of weeks ago we received an email from Harrison that he wanted to do his Mitzvah project( this is a good deed done by an boy who is about to be Bar Mitzvahed)to benefit Justin's Quest. Of course we were honored that Harrison chose to help raise awareness and find a cure for brain tumors. On Sunday October 17th Harrison, his dad Michael, mom Juliet and younger brother Hollis organized a fantastic event at St. Stephens school in Alexandria Virginia. They invited about 100 kids and parents to shoot hoops at the school gym which would go towards Justin's total. They charged an admission and raised almost $1300.00 and shot almost 6000 baskets. Justin and I attended the event for about an hour. Justin shot 50 hoops himself and he had a great time. He got in the car with me and said dad I am tired as I shot so many baskets to make my 50. He was shooting from the 3 point line and he had such a great time. I was in awe by Harrison and his family that they took such an interest in Justin's Quest. We even met a classmate of Harrison's who has a brain tumor and we gave him and Harrison's family a wristband. Justin even gave Harrison an autographed picture with a message of Justin in front of the White House. This was our first event of the Fall and it felt great! We want to again thank Harrison and his family for all there efforts to benefit Justin's Quest.
