JJ’s Hog Roast for Hospice began as a celebration of life for Jeffrey “JJ” Bruns, Jr., whose life was cut short from an accidental death in 2015. Hospice of the Red River Valley supported JJ’s family following his death, so his family wanted to memorialize his name in a special way that reminded them of JJ’s fun-loving personality.
JJ’s Hog Roast for Hospice has raised more than $60,000 for Hospice of the Red River Valley helping provide hospice care for patients and families.
