John Wesley Foster Foundation

A golf tournament this weekend will raise money for a foundation that puts defibrillators in schools and other facilities.

The John Wesley Foster Foundation is named in honor of a former Etowah County child who died of cardiac arrest while visiting his grandparents. His family began the foundation that has placed the devices inside numerous elementary and high schools in Etowah County, including Walnut Park Elementary in Gadsden, where the principal tells us she is trained to use it.

This weekend's golf tournament for the John Wesley Foster Foundation will be held at Silver Lakes Golf Course.
