Event Description:

Derek Johnston, who has been a leader in supporting the creative arts in San Diego since 2012, is battling Stage-4 Non-Clear Cell Kidney Cancer. He has been participating in a clinical trial and his body’s response to the treatment has been nothing short of incredible.

As the manager of The Horton Grand Theater, Derek has thrown his support behind innumerable creatives in San Diego. Because of his generosity and support of the arts in San Diego, a growing number of members of the creative arts community are stepping forward to help raise funds to allow him to continue receiving the life-saving treatment he so desperately needs.

With that in mind, Heartland Films, Inc., in association with IntelleXual Entertainment, Grudio Pictures and Preposterous Films are partnering to produce a twelve-hour live-streamed telethon Saturday, March 16, beginning at Noon, entitled Jump Start a Life.

This twelve-hour telethon will feature local bands, comedians, improv and theater performances and much more. The show will be broadcast from The Comedy Palace, 8878 Clairemont Mesa Boulevard in San Diego with live-streams on Facebook, YouTube and Twitch.
