Respect the Day
5k Run/Walk

On September 29, 1980 Justin W. Jennings was born in Wilmington, Delaware. The youngest of three children, Justin was your typical healthy, happy little boy who was maturing into a wonderful young man.



I want to tell you how much I appreciate the work you do for the community and the cancer families. It is really truly amazing.

You may not get that many thank yous from regular citizens but, a couple years ago I ran your 5k with my family. It is unquestionably the best thing I have seen anyone do in my life while doing it myself for your organization. You provide a place for families with a cancer victim to stay and enjoy the beach. Not that many people have that opportunity. I'm always pleased to see people and organizations helping their community. Whenever I come to Delaware my family and I drive past the house and we admire the work you do.

Without a doubt continue your foundation. Each and every day you can and will change someones life for the better. Thank you for your time.

Please contact Gloria Knittle at for more information or to arrange a visit.


The applicant (adult/child) must be undergoing active treatment for cancer. We consider treatment “active” when the applicant is seeing their physician for medication and/or therapy. An applicant is eligible until he/she has been off active treatment for one year.

It is our goal to offer cancer patients a week in beautiful Bethany Beach. Due to the large number of applications that we receive we cannot accept applications from families that have previously stayed at Justin’s Beach House.

Applicants residing outside of a 50-mile radius of Bethany Beach will be given first priority. Applicants residing within a 50-mile radius of Bethany Beach will not be considered until June 1.
