The Garrett Meriwether Foundation Inaugural

 5k Run/1 Mile Walk Scholarship Fundraiser

You Can Help Create a Lasting Legacy

   The Garrett Meriwether Foundation was founded by the family of Garrett Meriwether, a young man who was tragically killed on May 22, 2019 by a driver under the influence.  Garrett was only 18 years old the day he died and had just recently finished his first year at UNLV filled with the hope and promise of a career in hospitality management. He was a loving son, brother, grandson, nephew and dedicated friend to many, as demonstrated by his life of faith and service to others. 

   Garrett was a young man on the brink of adulthood, starting the next phase in his life, one that was sure to be filled with new experiences and opportunities. To honor Garrett, and in memory of his spirit, compassion and the passions left unfulfilled, we his family, together with his friends, made a commitment to raise money for scholarships and educational programs, so others have the benefit of pursuing their dreams and goals.   

   Losing a child is something no one should have to endure, but when it happens in such an abrupt and senseless manner, it brings into sharp focus all that is seemingly taken for granted. Most especially in the case of Garrett, the blessing of a chance to work towards and achieve his goals.  For this reason, we are extremely grateful to everyone willing to help us keep Garrett’s memory alive by helping give students financial support to realize their dreams. 

   Please join us as a participant, Sponsor, Silent Auction Donor or Contributor on September 15th for the Inaugural Garrett Meriwether Foundation 5k/1 Mile Walk.  We will use proceeds from this first event and many more to come, to establish scholarships for Palo Verde High School students planning to attend UNLV.  The awards will focus on students interested in speech and debate, DECA, or hospitality management.  Three of Garrett’s passions.
