His infectiously positive attitude, ever-present smile and vibrant personality literally impacted the lives of thousands of people. Billy began fighting brain cancer in 2005 and touched thousands more lives until his death in 2007 at the age of 13. The Billy Mock Foundation is a tribute to Billy and his compassion for people, love for life, and passion for sports. Our mission is simply to “help others” which is achieved through: Pay it forward program which is to encourages people to help others; educational grants; and support of families in need especially those with a sick child. The Billy Mock Foundation (a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization) was established in 2008, on what would have been Billy’s 14th birthday, by The Mock Family and Friends. It has awarded several scholarships, provided financial support to many families provided grants to support many pay it forward programs and a junior board to encourage teens to be active in their community. The Foundation is actively reviewing candidates for family-in-need grants. In addition to a golf outing, The Billy Mock Foundation hosts an annual 5K Run/1 mile walk on the last Sunday in March in Ridley Creek State Park.
