Jordan’s Way Weekend | Bike Ride Fundraiser & Scholarship Recipients

Jordan's Way

This year has been like a roller coaster ride for us all. Recent occurrences in our world have interrupted Jordan’s Way Foundation planned programming, however, the amazing Jordan’s Way Team pushed ahead, remains well and very active, and most importantly, accomplished several goals in 2020. Below are some of the highlights of this year’s accomplishments and upcoming activities for the Annual Jordan’s Weekend.

This year, the Foundation partnered with Lawrence M. Drake II and the Color Him Father Book Tour. Jordan’s Way Co-Founder, Peter Radway, Sr was a featured guest speaker on a panel of Black fathers who’ve experienced the loss of a child. This opportunity provided the Foundation with welcomed media coverage on Fox5’s Good Day DC, as well as a connection to the audience participants from the community.

Also, we’re thrilled to announce that we launched the Annual Jordan’s Way Foundation Scholarship Program, which awards scholarships to seniors graduating from Paint Branch High School in Montgomery County, MD (Jordan’s alma mater). This year, we received a healthy number of applications and the Scholarship Committee was able to select two recipients, both attending universities in the Maryland/Washington, DC corridor.

Lastly, COVID will not stop us from honoring our fallen son, brother, and friend. The 2nd Annual Jordan’s Weekend is still on! On September 25-27, Jordan’s Way will host a series of events that you can support virtually and in person, safely practicing social distancing. Jordan’s Way is committed to staying true to the mission — fighting gun violence through community programming, scholarships, and awareness.

This September 25-27, the second Annual Jordan’s Weekend will take place with activities to include a celebration of two graduating seniors, who are recipients of the Jordan’s Way Scholarship, raise funds to support local community groups, and continue the work around preventing gun violence among youth.
