JT’s Camp Grom
The region is filled and inspired by people whose lives have been altered by events out of their control. Now, today, we have the power to alter those lives in another way, in a strikingly positive way. JT’s Camp Grom can become a sanctuary, a gathering place, a world of support and learning and rehabilitation unlike no other in this area. For our wounded war heroes, for the families of fallen warriors, for children and adults with physical and intellectual disabilities, this camp would be a first-ever destination of compassion and support.
About The Virginia Gentlemen Foundation
In 2007, a group of young men who had grown up together in Virginia Beach wanted to give something back. They decided to pool their resources and talents to help area families affected with disabilities. The Virginia Gentlemen Foundation was born as a non-profit organization. The following month, the brother of one of the founding members was diagnosed with ALS, or Lou Gehrig’s disease. In response, the Virginia Gentlemen Foundation narrowed its focus to support the local fight against ALS. With energy and resourcefulness, the Virginia Gentlemen Foundation has since rallied the community and the region in unprecedented ways, quickly becoming a leading fundraiser for the National ALS Society as well as, developing other projects and initiatives to support this community. To date, the Virginia Gentlemen Foundation has raised over $3 million to help fight and find a cure for ALS.
