The Inaugural HOPE Golf Tournament - In Memory of Jeret "Speedy" Peterson - took place at Banbury Golf Course on July 28, 2012. A portion of proceeds from this Celebration of Life were donated to Idaho's Suicide Prevention Hotline. The remaining proceeds benefited The Speedy Foundation, who used the funds to contribute to the awareness and prevention of suicide.
"Jeret's "get-er-done" philosophy and love for people inspire me everyday," Says cousin and tournament coordinator for the Speedy Foundation, Shannon Decker. "He is a hero to so many people in his family, in Boise, in Idaho, in America, and internationally. For this event we want people to be able to come together and remember what a vivacious character Speedy was and share their favorite Speedy stories."
