I am overjoyed by the overwhelming support the For C.J. Initiative was able to garner and could not be more grateful to everyone who did their part to make this dream a reality. I would like to highlight some individuals in particular who helped me create the campaign and truly supported me behind the scenes. Without them the campaign would not have been successful at all.
