Named for Java, a chocolate lab that meant the world to Jill and Tony, Java Forever is an organization founded by Java's owner and best friend Jason McCarthy and his wife, Emily.
Java would climb mountains and trees, forge streams, and push people out of cars to say hello. Car 58 is named Java in honor of this incredible dog.
Founded by Jason McCarthy, GORUCK's mission is to (1) serve as a voice for good, (2) employ more Veterans of Special Operations than any organization outside the US military, and (3) build a bridge between the military and civilian worlds. GORUCK builds the best gear right here in the USA, leads team-building endurance events based upon experiences in Special Forces and loves to ruck.
Jill's two sisters and first husband, and Tony's mother, all lost their battles with cancer at very young ages. Because of this, we have been raising funds and awareness for the Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center for over 25 years.
Part of Georgetown University Medical Center and MedStar Georgetown University Hospital, the Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center seeks to prevent, treat, and cure cancers by linking scientific discovery, expert and compassionate patient care, quality education, and partnership with the community; guided by the principle of cura personalis, "care for the whole person."
Established in 1970, the Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center is named for legendary football coach Vince Lombardi, who was treated for cancer at Georgetown University Hospital. What began as a small clinic treating cancer patients has grown into a state-of-the-art cancer center housing more than 240,000 square feet of clinic and research space. The director of the Cancer Center is Louis M. Weiner, MD.
In 1974, Georgetown Lombardi became the 16th National Cancer Institute (NCI)-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center in the country. Today, we remain the only center with this designation in the Washington, DC, area, and one of just 45 in the nation.
