The CDGA Foundation Golf Marathon has been an integral part of the CDGA Foundation's fundraising efforts, raising about $650,000 in its previous eight years. Funds raised go directly towards CDGA Foundation programming, which utilizes golf to enrich the lives of individuals with special needs, military veterans and youth.
Participating golfers spend the months leading up to the event collecting pledges from family, friends and business associates. The CDGA Foundation provides participants with tools to achieve a $2,500 fundraising goal. Then, on Saturday, May 20 at Zigfield Troy, golfers will play 100 par-3 holes in a fun and quick fashion. Lastly, individuals who reach the $2,500 fundraising goal will be invited to a year-end party featuring golf and two meals at a private country club.
