What is the AGF/Friends of Freedom Marathon?
The AGF/Friends of Freedom Marathon is an incredibly fun fundraising campaign, which will raise some serious dollars. It is a way for participants, both duffer and low handicapper alike, to rally support while doing something they really enjoy – playing golf. And in the process they are raising money to support a military charities that take care of our soldiers and their families.
Each participant in the Golf Marathon will do three things.
Give A Day, April 19th at Moon Valley Country Club, & Play golf at the golf course. Shotgun start right after breakfast.
Sponsor himself for at least $1 per hole.
Solicit sponsorships from business associates, friends and family with a goal of raising an additional $24 per hole…that amounts to $2,500 each golfer can raise for this most worthwhile cause. So, you can see with a field of 48 participants, each raising $2,500, we could reach $120,000. WOW!
