The Story

The W. Michael Larrick Memorial Scholarship fund was established in 2014 by Michael Larrick and Britney Hammond (Larrick) in memory of their father, W. Michael (Mike) Larrick, and his desire for his children to get the best education possible. In 2015 his son Michael created the Outbreak 5K, a zombie themed run to help raise money for the scholarship.

Mike Larrick was a hardworking blue collar man who wore his heart on his sleeve and wanted nothing more in the world than to see his children succeed. Like many parents he worked unwaveringly in the pursuit of a better life for his children. Mike tragically passed on February 19th 2004 in a work related accident. After his death family, friends, and Mike’s employer all contributed and financially assisted both children so they could achieve the goal their father had set for them. The W. Michael Larrick Memorial Scholarship Fund was created in memory of his hard work and dedication to his children’s education. The goal of this scholarship fund is to allow others who have lost a parent or guardian the chance to pursue higher education.

From the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU! 
The last few weeks have been challenging and emotional in ways that words can not describe. Your support for our family, and the memorial scholarship fund that Michael held so dear to his heart makes a world of difference. With every new donation and message it brings joy to our hearts. It's truly inspiring to see how he touched so many people with his warmth and good heart.

Many people have asked what else they can do to show their support, we suggest two things. Share your favorite memory or story about Michael on his memorial page.Reading how he touched so many lives helps in ways we can not express fully. The other thing is register for the Outbreak 5K run, we are still planning on having it June 17th and hope to see you all there!
