100 Hole Hike- Golf Fundraiser - Support ELS for Autism Research (and Crossroads School)
From Kevin Vedder: "On July 29th at Echo Lake Country Club in Westfield, NJ, I'll be taking part in the Hundred Hole Hike for the seventh consecutive year, once again in an effort to raise funds and awareness for autism-related causes. I’m doing this in honor of my son, Seamus, a loving and energetic ten-year-old boy touched by autism. I’m happy that my friends Shaun Murphy and Sean Taylor will be joining me in this effort, where we'll be walking and playing 100+ holes of golf in a single day.
We’re raising funds for two worthy causes, Crossroads School, run by the Union County Education Services Commission, as well as Els for Autism, both of which are 501(c)(3) organizations.
If you'd be interested in supporting us with a donation, please feel free to do so via one of the links below. If you're in the Westfield area on July 29th, please stop by, say hello, and walk a few holes with us. We'll be there from about 5:30 am until 8:30 pm, and would love to see you.
Crossroads is a developmental school for children on the autism spectrum. It uses a multi-disciplinary approach and is the school Seamus attends. Funds raised for Crossroads will support initiatives like community-based field trips, and musical, speech, occupational, and physical therapy enhancements to the overall curriculum. If donating to Crossroads, please add a note under the donation amount specifying "Crossroads - 100 Hole Hike."
The Els for Autism Foundation focuses on several programs for children and adults impacted by autism, including Education, Research, Global Outreach, Recreation Services, Therapy Services, and Adult Services.
If you're interested in making a donation per hole played, please reach out to me directly.
We realize you have many options available to you for charitable donations, and greatly appreciate you supporting us. Regardless of whether you can donate, please make an effort to not only accept, but also seek to include, children and adults with special needs. It has a meaningful impact."
