The Speedy Foundation

The Speedy Foundation was founded by Jeret Peterson's family and friends, in the spirit of Jeret’s own passion of giving to others.  The Speedy Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. The Speedy Foundation proceeds support education and outreach to help educate young athletes and their peers as well as engage with advocacy groups such as the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) to increase awareness of mental illness and suicide prevention.


Our Mission is Simple.

The Speedy Foundation is dedicated to preventing suicide through education and outreach in the athletic community. The Foundation was created to help eliminate the stigma of depression and anxiety in young athletes by increasing awareness, opening discussions and creating a safe community that supports them with these challenges.

The Speedy Foundation’s purpose is saving lives. The Foundation will serve as a bridge to young athletes who may be in crisis or know someone who is. The Foundation will help educate and offer resources to coaches, families and peers. The foundation will engage with advocacy groups to increase awareness about mental illness and suicide prevention.  We will help to develop an actively engaged, “present” community to aid our youth and support systems in preventing suicide.
