The 4th Annual Garrett’s Path 5K Walk/Run and Hero Ride is scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 24, 2016.
This is a family friendly event to honor 10-year-old Garrett Brockway. Participants can take part in the 5K and/or bicycle ride (12, 24, and 34 mile options). Proceeds will go to the Garrett M. Brockway Foundation to help increase organ donation awareness.
The Garrett M. Brockway Foundation was created in 2013 to honor Garrett’s ultimate sacrifice of organ and tissue donation as a result of his tragic death at the age of 10-years-old. Increasing awareness for the great need of organ donation is first and foremost goal of the foundation. In addition, the foundation will strive to make a positive impact on children’s lives through academic opportunities and athletic programs.
Garrett was a Gift from God and he was also a Giver of Life. Through his ultimate sacrifice, he saved five people’s lives by donating his heart, liver, pancreas and both kidneys. His corneas helped improve vision for two additional people and his tissues have improved the quality of life for countless others.
