Freedom Golf Association Hosts Its Inaugural "Honor Wounded Vets 5K Run/Walk" at McDonald's Corporate Campus in Oak Brook, October 15


Byline: Cindy Kurman

Freedom Golf Association's "Honor Wounded Vets 5K Run/Walk," October 15, is a fun way to "give disabled people the opportunity to do what everyone else can do," says Sally Ruecking, FGA's Vice President of Strategic Advancement. The public is encouraged to join Freedom Golf Association on Sunday, October 15 at McDonald's Corporate Campus (2915 Jorie Blvd. at 31st Street, Oak Brook, Illinois 60523) to honor Veterans who have been wounded in their service to the country. The event also will raise funds to support adaptive golf programs for these individuals. Registration begins at 7:45 a.m.

The Honor Wounded Vets 5K Run/Walk will include timed and untimed tracks in Men's, Women's and Wheelchair Divisions. Additional activities include vendor booths, chipping and putting demonstrations, a contest to drive onto a floating green and the opportunity to take a self-guided tour of McDonald's Hamburger University. Live music will be provided by the Elmhurst College Jazz Band. Participants of all ages can learn more and register at http://www.fgagolf.org/honor-wounded-vets-5k-runwalk.html.

The Honor Wounded Vets 5K Run/Walk is open to the public, including able-bodied runners and walkers and those with special needs. Its purpose is to acknowledge Illinois' wounded vets, a growing number of whom have taken up golf to enjoy its many physical, emotional and social benefits. As a fundraiser for FGA, the event also supports FGA's adaptive golf programs, which include golf clinics and lessons, the training of adaptive golf coaches and advocacy to make more golf courses accessible to special needs players.

"We're proud to host this special event," said E.Q. Sylvester, Chairman of the Freedom Golf Association. "The Veteran community--as a group of dedicated players and coaches--has embraced adaptive golf wholeheartedly. In addition to being an exuberating event for everyone, the 5K gives us an opportunity to introduce more of our honored vets to adaptive golf. Our servicemen deserve the chance to partake in all of life's enjoyments and adaptive golf makes it possible for many to reap the benefits of this great game."

FGA Event Sponsors include WLS Talk Radio, Molex LLC, Rich Harvest Farms, KF Partners LLC, and Reebie Storage and Moving.

"Freedom Golf Association encourages corporations with cause marketing programs that help the disabled to become FGA sponsors or corporate foundation grant providers and help us grow," said Ruecking.

Freedom Golf Association leads the way in bringing adaptive golf to Illinois and is an integral part of the growing national movement, which has been embraced by major golf entities such as the PGA, LPGA and USGA.
