Garrett George with Trinity Oaks and Dream Trips will be our speaker.  Garrett, Central Texas Sales Rep at Hanes Geo Components and former United Way Loaned Executive, witnessed first-hand the difference an Action Track Chair made in the life of his physically disabled friend, Tyson Dever. These custom-made electric wheelchairs are designed with articulating tracks which provide all-terrain mobility—allowing individuals who are terminally ill and/or seriously disabled the opportunity to better experience the outdoors no matter what the environment. Garrett met Tyson in 2008 and in 2010, Tyson received his Action Track Chair. After seeing this life-changing impact, Garrett was inspired to utilize his contacts in the construction industry to hold a fundraiser in October of 2013. This event provided an Action Track Chair for a 15 year old boy with Cerebral Palsy. Soon after, Garrett joined the Trinity Oaks Advisory Board where he now serves as the “Dream Trips” Coordinator. The Dream Trips program focuses on giving both disabled individuals and their immediate family the chance to create happy memories at no cost to them through hunting, fishing, and other outdoor activities. Garrett has made it his mission to do what he can for the less fortunate and those in need and knows without a doubt “this is what we’re called to do”.
