United for Veterans: Fairways to Freedom Charity Golf tournament
Charity golf tournament to raise funds for adaptive golfers.
COLUMBIA, S.C. (WIS) - The second annual Fairways to Freed Charity golf event was held at the Cobblestone Golf Club in Blythewood on Monday, March 20.
The goal of the tournament is to raise money for equipment to help golfers with disabilities. WIS partnered with the Range fore Hope foundation through our United for Veterans initiative.
Last year, the Range fore Hope Foundation was able to secure several adaptive golf carts and train over 30 volunteers.
Alvin King, founder of Range Fore Hope said “This tournament was started last year to help adaptive golfers and if you’re unfamiliar with what adaptive golf is, it’s golfers with disabilities. Range Fore Hope specifically helps military members are their families. From active duty, veterans, their dependents as well as family members. We have carts that will help people with spinal injuries as well as all other types of injuries.”
