Swing Away Charities, LLC began as an idea: “how do we give back to our community and have fun doing it?” This thought sparked Ryan Willis into action and led to their inaugural charity golf tournament in 2015 at Park Hill Golf Club. That year’s benefactor was Children’s Hospital of Colorado and the event raised $11,000 to help a hospital that has helped so many children and families within our community. Since then, we have raised over $50,000 for charity in different areas.
2019 marks our fifth year for our annual Swing Away charity golf events with this being our first year holding multiple events. This year we will be holding our 4th annual Swing Away for Craig event on September 6th. This year’s benefactor is once again Craig Hospital, a world-renowned rehabilitation hospital that exclusively specializes in the neuro-rehabilitation and research of patients with spinal cord injury and traumatic brain injury. Craig is a not-for-profit, free-standing, national center of excellence that has treated more than 31,000 patients with SCI and TBI since 1956. This is our fourth consecutive year where we are raising money to benefit the patients of Craig Hospital, some of whom are family, friends, colleagues, and other members of the community. Over the last 3 years we were fortunate enough to raise nearly $40,000 for the great patients and faculty at Craig Hospital!
In conjunction with supporting Craig Hospital for a fourth year, the 2019 event will be hosted by Thorn Creek Golf Course. Thorn Creek is in Thornton, CO and has been a great partner in coordinating other amazing events in the past.
We look forward to the years to come and the community that is being built around this event. The event and its success is a representation of the amazing participants and incredible volunteers that support the cause. We can’t thank you enough if you’re already involved, and if you haven’t registered to join us yet, we’d love it if you could.
Whether you are playing in the event, or if you are just looking to support a great cause, please feel free to donate To Craig Hospital through the following link. Thank You In Advance!
