The proceeds from JonJam benefit The R.E.A.L. Project (Refurbished Equipment Assisting Lives) which opened in October 2010 at the Wiregrass Rehabilitation Center and Jon Lee manages. Since then, the organization has helped over 5,000 people plus their families. The R.E.A.L. Project is a central place for people to bring any used medical equipment for people with disabilities of all ages. The equipment is then refurbished and the items are loaned out on a first come, first serve basis. Six years ago, the Jon Lee Foundation joined the national organization AMBUCS sharing part of the proceeds of JonJam. AMBUCS provides AmTryke therapeutic tricycles to individuals unable to operate a traditional bike. These bikes give strength and mobility back to disabled individuals.
The mission is helping people in the Wiregrass with physical disabilities gain more independence and quality of life. AMBUCS now functions as part of The Jon Lee Foundation, giving more than 200 bikes since the local chapter opened in 2012.
With your help, the dreams can continue to better the community for the physically disabled people in the Wiregrass area, serving eight counties. The next goal is to open an Activity Center that will help people that are physically and/or intellectually challenged which will give these individuals more opportunities that they deserve to be offered. Different activities being considered include cycling, fitness program, wellness plan, Zumba, water therapy, archery classes, competitive basketball, baseball and softball leagues, emotional and motivational speakers.
