Just for J is an amazing nonprofit organization that not only raises awareness for Charcot Marie Tooth Disease, but also sponsor families with children with other illnesses and helps ease the financial burden their illness caused their family. Jacqueline (J) is such a sweet, spunky, inspirational girl who blesses everyone she meets! I'm so happy to be apart of this wonderful organization!
Just for J has raised not only my awareness, but has raised awareness around the country. The people behind this non-profit have so much heart and love. The world is a better place because of Just for J.
Just for J was started a few years ago by one of my best friends, Amanda Borg! It was started to raise awareness for Charcot Marie Tooth Disease while giving back to children who are faced with medical challenges. This organization has come a long way since the first year it was started and I am so proud of everything Amanda has accomplished! Just for J has touched so many lives in such a short time and I have no doubt it will continue to do great things for years to come!
Just for J was started in 2012 by Amanda Borg. A full time graduate student with a full time job. Regardless of her already busy schedule, her love for Jacqueline (J) and desire to help out inspired her to organize the first Just for J Fun Run and 5K event. Although she had no prior experience, her hard work and passion for the cause made this day a success. A wonderful charity was born.
Just for J, Inc. has since grown into a qualified non profit charity organization. While always bringing awareness to CMT, Just for J also raises money for children with other challenging medical needs as well.
In addition to the annual Fun Run and 5K, Just for J, Inc. now collaborates with other like minded charities and holds many varied events throughout the year.
If you find yourself in North Texas and can attend a Just for J event, I highly recommend it. Amanda and her staff of energetic volunteers have an infectious attitude of giving.
Once you meet Jacqueline it will change your life!
Just for J raises awareness for Charcot Marie Tooth Disease while giving back to children faced with medical challenges. My best friend, Amanda Borg, originally started this nonprofit with the goal and desire to raise awareness and help raise money for Jacqueline and her family. She fell in love with precious Jacqueline and felt a calling from the man upstairs to step up and help make a difference in that sweet girl's life. Since then, this organization has grown incredibly and has impacted more children and families! It's such a blessing! The love and passion that this team puts in to this organization is absolutely amazing and I can not say how happy my heart is to see the impact Just for J is making. Personally, I am incredibly proud of Amanda for being so brave back in 2012 and following her heart to help create such wonderful opportunities for these sweet children and their families. it brings tears to my eyes to think about it because I know how special it is to her and how important it is to her life. My entire heart pours out to Just for J and I am truly inspired.
My Girlfriend, Amanda Borg, founder of Just for J, started this non profit with the help of caring family members and friends. It had the original intention of helping sweet Jacqueline, and has since transformed into an organization with an amazingly widespread reach, helping multiple families, and bringing families in need the comfort and support they deserve. I have been blessed to be a part of this organization for the past few years now, and can't say enough about its bright and life changing future!! Just for J has touched so many, and it will continue to grow and give fully.

I first found out about The Just for J 5k when it was just a race that I wanted to be apart of. The year I joined the team I felt so inspired by Jacqueline and wanted to do more. We decided that we would make Just for J an official nonprofit to where we could help more kids with medical challenges. Every time I meet another honorary family member, my heart is full and I'm even more inspired by their story. I am thankful that I am apart of Just for J and I am apart of being a difference in these kids lives.
Just for J, Inc. has truly touched my heart. Observing the joy and bravery of one child spread hope for so many others is such a blessing. Only good things to come for this great non-profit.
Just For J is near and dear to my heart!! Started in honor of my daughter, Jacqueline in order for her to fulfill her bucket list trip after hearing devistatinh news. It has become a bigger blessing than we ever imagined. Overwhelmed with all the support we turned Just For J into a nonprofit in order to give back to others. It's so important to help/support those in need & we strive to do just that.
