Joseph Groh Foundation Golf Tournament Update and Newest Grant Recipient
In light of current events, we are postponing our May 4 tournament at Coyote Ridge in Carrollton, Texas. In the next few weeks, we will announce alternate plans for this tournament, as we are definitely planning to hold a replacement event in 2020.
This change will allow our foundation to move ahead more aggressively with other aspects of our 2020 plan, as we do not plan to back off any aspect of our mission.
In terms of providing financial assistance to individuals from our industry who are living with life altering disabilities, we recently finished two projects, we are working on two more and have an additional project in the pipeline. Thank you for all your support, and we will be back in touch regarding our revised plans.
Meanwhile, meet Wayne Harwood, the latest grant recipient of the foundation, He received a new wheelchair, thanks to all our supporters and a partnership with the I Got Legs foundation: https://www.facebook.com/igotlegs/videos/163827784870465/
About The Joseph Groh Foundation
Joe Groh has been active in the heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) industry for the past 35 years. On Father’s Day of 2008, following a day spent with family, Joe decided to go for an aerobic bike ride along the trails of Lake Grapevine. At one point the trail turned sharply left and the front tire of Joe’s mountain bike slid on some sand and off the trail. Joe was thrown headfirst over the handlebars, breaking his neck and damaging his spinal cord at the C-4 vertebra. Knowing that life had suddenly and unalterably changed, Joe vowed to never look back, never give up and to remain positive.
Establishing The Joseph Groh Foundation, a 501(c)(3) tax-deductible foundation, is Joe’s way of giving back to the construction trades industry by:
- Serving as a clearinghouse of information for those with spinal cord injuries.
- Encouraging companies to offer and employees to purchase short and long-term disability insurance.
- Financially assisting those with a connection to the construction trades industry who are living with a life altering injury or illness.
