Help a Jax Beach Hero Battle Cancer


There are very few people who are willing to be selfless and put others before themselves. But there’s one in our community who has lived his life helping others. Now he needs our help. At the age of 43,  Ronnie Strong, Jax Beach native and captain with the Jacksonville Beach Fire Department, was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer. He and his wife are loving parents of three beautiful young children. Let’s help Ronnie and his family in their fight against cancer. Throughout the weekend, you’ll see fireman’s boots at festival booths, both stages,  VIP tent and some nearby businesses to collect contributions for Ronnie. Please give what you can. Jax Beach Festivals and Springing the Blues will match all contributions up to $3,000.
