John and Linda Lynch formed the John Lynch Foundation in August 2000 to provide encouragement and positive alternatives for young people. They believe that good, solid values can be learned through education, sport participation and community involvement, and have structured a foundation to reward and reinforce those values.
Like many non-profit organizations, they have limited funds for high-end design and development, but Planet Telex Inc. in Denver, CO was happy to donate the time and manpower to provide the organization the website they deserve.
The site, redesigned then implemented on the Sitefinity CMS, showcases all the young people honored by the JLF on a scrolling virtual tack board on the home page. It also features the "Star of the Month" and showcases their annual Salute the Stars awards presentation.
