Jarred Williams :  1988-2001
Jarred Williams was born and grew up in Richmond, Vermont.
Part of his life story is about how short it was. He died on his 13th
birthday,Thanksgiving day, of a brain tumor. While the last part of his life 
included several surgeries,six weeks of radiation treatment in Boston and 
months of uncertainty,this is only one part of the story. 
Jarred's life also exemplified fun,friends and family. He was always up for
an adventure and kept a positive attitude throughout his life. He enjoyed
playing soccer,swimming in his backyard pool, having fun with his close-
knit family and group of friends, and hanging out with his golden retriever.
Laughter was never far away. Even as his tumor progressed and his words
slipped away, he communicated with thumbs up sign. The core  of his 
life was centered around family and friends, and it is with this spirit
his family was able to create the Jarred Williams Foundation. 
His foundation is no longer active but his family has continued to support
many other organizations who's mission is to support families who have
a child with a chronic and life threatening illness. And Never Give Up Ever 
is one of them. 
Thank you all that will be running on Thanksgiving morning in Jarred's memory
and for the Benefit of Never Give Up Ever.
Dwayne Williams
(Jarred's Dad )
