J.T. Townsend to Give Back to Local Community | News
PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. -- Former Episcopal High School football player J.T. Townsend is starting a foundation to give back to the community that has supported him since his spinal cord injury in 2004.
Townsend was injured during a football game on October 8, 2004. Since then the people of the First Coast have rallied behind this inspirational young man to help him and his family with medical expenses, housing, and transportation.
Professional golfer and First Coast resident Fred Funk has also been an avid supporter of J.T. since his injury. Now this college student is starting his own foundation to assist children and adults with disabilties.
