On September 28, 2014 we had a launch party at Moran’s Bar in Fort Myers, Florida. This marked the official beginning of Ethan’s Journeys. Friends, family, supporters and the media (Naples Daily News, NBC and Fox 4 WFTX-TV ) came out to celebrate with us and offered their emotional and even financial support to our cause. We also received some initial funding toward our 2015 Bucket List fund. We had a great time and Ethan’s memory was well served.
Included among our guests were two former NFL football players, Dave Garrard and Kyle Brady. Both of these men are very supportive of Ethan’s Journeys. In fact, we will be doing some collaborative work with the Dave Garrard Foundation in his fight against breast cancer, Crohn’s disease and promoting healthy lifestyles for kids.
