This year will be the 25th year as a Foundation. It is hard to know what to say... are we celebrating this milestone since it is because of Brian's death that we created the foundation?
The Brian LaViolette Foundation has grown over the last 24 years and I feel one of the many blessings during this time is the number of people who have remained in our lives since the beginning of the Foundation's 'Journey'.
Austin Rios and Brian quickly became good friends in the 8th grade. Today, the Rios family and ours continue to be in each others lives. Austin received the Brian LaViolette Scholarship in 1995 from DePere High School and now lives in Rome Italy as an Episcopal priest.
Please take a few minutes to learn more about Austin's journey and his memories of Brian.
We will continue to embrace and celebrate those who started this journey with us and those we have met along the way.
You are all a part of something big. Together, we can continue to inspire and support hundreds of people across the world and in the communities we live.
