An event benefiting the Garrett Webber Memorial Scholarship Fund

Losing a loved one is one of the most painful experiences for someone to endure. On June 2, 2017 the Webber Family faced this firsthand when their son Garrett lost his life due to a heroin overdose. Garrett was only 22 years old and was a young man with an “old soul”, known for his big heart, great wit, and love for authentic coffee. He aspired to be a welder one day, but lost his battle with addiction before being able to live out his dream.

Sadly, Garrett is just one of many who struggle with opioid addiction. As part of turning their pain into purpose, it is the Webber Family’s heartfelt desire to bless others who struggle with life-threatening addictions.

The first annual We Walk for HOPE 5k is a fun, non-timed event, open to people of all fitness levels. All proceeds from the event will benefit the Garrett Webber Memorial Scholarship Fund at Genesis Recovery to provide a scholarship for an individual to receive treatment. It’s the Webber Family’s HOPE that this opportunity will free addicts from the grip of addiction and spare other families from the pain of losing a loved one too soon.

If you are unable to participate, please consider signing up as a virtual walker. Having as many participants as possible (whether near or far) is crucial to the success of this event.

In honor of Garrett and all those who’ve lost someone, would you please walk with us to make this possible?
