About the Mark Garwood Foundation

An insatiable curiosity about life, a passion for living, and a loving and generous nature characterized Mark Garwood. As a teen, he was diagnosed with type I diabetes, but he never let it slow him down. He excelled in a wide range of sports due to his athletic abilities. He was charming, persuasive, and sincere in all of his relationships. Mark was always willing to help his friends, regardless of circumstances.

While attending college in Orlando in 2009, Mark was assaulted during a pick-up basketball game. As a result of his hospitalization, he developed an addiction to pain medications. During this time, Mark left school, alienated friends and family, and got into legal trouble. Mark knew he was on a destructive path and was determined to change. After detox, rehab, and participation in twelve-step programs, Mark began to recover.  He found spiritual and emotional support among his peers in a recovery residence.  He had secured his dream job and was embarking on a rewarding and exciting career path.

Following a five-year battle with substance use disorder, Mark died of complications associated with addiction and diabetes. To provide hope, change lives, and build a brighter future for those in recovery, the Mark Garwood Foundation was founded in 2014.
