Q'in for a cure in Justin's memory

STAUNTON — In May they took Chesapeake by storm.

Four months later, Pigs on the Run placed first in the Hedgesville, W.Va., competition, and again in Bridgeton, N.J. But on Saturday, the three-time state barbecue champions will join with its competition for something more important than a trophy: a cure.

The local competition barbecue team, Pigs on the Run, and fellow teams from Richmond, Northern Virginia, Maryland, North Carolina and New York will host Q'in for a Cure in honor of junior member Justin Harris, 11, who died of cancer last May.

The community barbecue fundraiser, now in its second year, was conducted last January to help Justin's family with their finances. According to family friend and fellow teammate John Atkins, Pigs on the Run teammate Eric Blum came up with the idea after watching Justin's parents, Mark and Chris Harris, struggle to make ends meet and pay their medical bills.

"People don't realize, when you have a child with cancer, it's deeply devastating financially, emotionally and physically, Atkins said. "Insurance doesn't cover as much as people think sometimes."

After Justin died, Pigs on the Run decided to keep the fundraiser going to support organizations that helped the Harris family through Justin's cancer.

Other than the insurance from families who stay there, Ronald McDonald House runs completely off donations from the community, and Mark Harris plans to donate some of the money raised Saturday to the house where he and his family stayed during Justin's treatment.

"I didn't realize what a great thing that is until we were staying there on and off for several months," Mark said of Ronald McDonald House. "They give you supplies while you're there, and you don't have to want for anything."

Throughout his illness, Justin also was a driving force in raising money for St. Jude's Christian Hospital, so the team plans to donate part of the proceeds to the hospital as well.

"He was adamant that we help with the St. Jude radiothon last year," Mark said. "He wore himself out going to those, because he went to all of (the ones) in our area."

More than 500 people attended last year's Q'in for a Cure, which raised more than $10,000. The teams have set a goal of 700 attendees this year.

Each ticket buys a barbecue pork tenderloin (optional hot dog for kids younger than 9), green beans, potato salad, a dinner roll, dessert and lemonade or iced tea. All proceeds will be donated to St. Jude Children's Hospital, Ronald McDonald House and a Waynesboro whose son is undergoing cancer treatment.
