An Evening of Will Power — A Tremendous Success

The Brave Will Foundation would like to extend a huge “thank you” to everyone who was able to attend the 1st Annual Evening of Will Power on Saturday night. The turnout and support was overwhelming, far beyond any expectations that we set for our first year.

Over the coming days, we’ll have more information about the money that was raised, images from the event, etc. Below, if you were unable to attend, you can view the video that was shown at the event. We would again like to thank Mike Wickham and Torie Wells from Fox 23 for the incredible job they both did in producing this video. It was more than we ever could have imagined. This video does an amazing job of blending Will’s story with the goals and mission of the Brave Will Foundation, and will serve as a powerful promotional tool as we move forward with our efforts.
