Our scholarship fund began in 2008 and honors the memories of my father, Edward Yarock, and my stepfather, Dr. Edward Weiner. Both men were kind hearted, empathetic and inspirational to all who came into contact with them and subscribed to the adage, “Give a man a fish and he eats for a day. Teach a man to fish and he eats for life.”
Our fund provides scholarships to individuals pursuing higher education related to the equine and harness racing industries. The fund also provides grants to individuals in the harness racing community (their children and/or family members) in their pursuit of higher education. Since inception, through the end of 2015, the fund has provided over $150,000 in assistance.
