Although it was a weekend night, the parking lot at Cassell Elementary School was full to overflowing Saturday, with hundreds of people turning up to help raise funds for an 11-year-old diagnosed with cancer.

Justin Harris, a fifth-grader at Cassell, has been spending his time shuttling between his home in Crimora and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, Tenn., where he began receiving treatment after a cancer discovered in his arm in 2005 began spreading to his lungs.

“His spirit’s been amazing for what he’s going through,” said father Mark Harris. “Kids are so much stronger than adults.”

Raising money to help the Harris family pay for the regular trips to St. Jude was the goal of Saturday’s event, with the community packing the Cassell cafeteria to take part in a $10-per-plate barbecue dinner.

The barbecue was cooked according to an award-winning recipe perfected by the competitive team Pigs on the Run, of which Harris is a member. The Pigs on the Run are the reigning state champs in barbecuing.

Volunteer cooks included team members and other competitive grillers from across the state, with one coming from as far as Pennsylvania. Businesses from Woodbridge and Richmond donated enough meat for 600, but in the first hour alone the frenzied cooking crew plated 300 dinners, sending organizers scrambling for more food.

“It’s awesome,” Harris said of this outpouring of support from hundreds of complete strangers. “I just want to thank everybody who’s come in for their support and their prayers.”

Justin and his mother were both absent from the event, as this was one of their weeks to be at St. Jude. Recent tests showed Justin’s tumors were hitting a stable stride, according to Harris.

“We’ll take that,” he said. “That means they’re not growing.”
