Congressman Brian Mast will be in attendance at the inaugural “Shoot For The Moon” sporting clays competition to be held at the South Florida Shooting Club on March 31.  The event is sponsored by the Mark Garwood SHARE Foundation, a local non-profit organization established to provide educational scholarships to qualified individuals who are seeking to resume their educational pursuits after battling back from substance abuse.
 
The “Shoot For The Moon” sporting clays competition will raise funds to sustain and expand the Scholarship Fund of the Foundation.  “We have seen undeniable evidence that pursuing one’s educational goals is a powerful incentive for long term recovery from substance abuse”, said Erica Garwood, President and Founder of the Mark Garwood SHARE Foundation.  “This epidemic has derailed the lives of so many young people, and our Foundation is committed to giving them hope, support, and a sense of purpose toward a sober and productive future.”   Since its inception in 2014 following the tragic death of her son from the effects of opioid addiction, the Mark Garwood SHARE Foundation has awarded over $50,000 in financial aid to nine qualified recipients.
 
“Unfortunately, the stigma surrounding opioid addiction often makes it that much harder for people struggling with this illness to get their lives back on track,” Congressman Brian Mast said.  “That’s why this cause is so critical in helping people in our community to not only survive but also to thrive.”
