First Annual Charity Golf to Benefit First Responders and Burn Survivors

First Annual Charity Golf to Benefit First Responders and Burn Survivors

Eden Prairie, MN. (May 26, 2020) – With concerts postponed, MLB on hold and now the state fair cancelled – a day of social distancing golf sounds like the perfect distraction! The Tee it Up Golf Event at Bearpath Golf and Country Club on Monday, August 10, 2020 will benefit first responders and burn survivors who travel to Minneapolis for care.

When a first responder is injured or receives a medical diagnosis that needs treatment in the Twin Cities, Firefighters For Healing provides support and free overnight accommodations for their family. When a child or adult has suffered severe trauma or life-threatening burns from anywhere in Minnesota and the surrounding states, they are almost always flown to Minneapolis for the world class care provided at Hennepin Healthcare’s level one trauma center. The reality is they may be far from home for weeks or months. Firefighters For Healing steps up to provide qualifying families meals, transportation, accommodations, camp scholarships, toys and more.
