Fairways for Freedom® helps injured veterans assimilate back into society through holistic initiatives and the game of golf
Many U.S. Veterans struggle with physical disabilities, including loss of limbs, and with mental-health issues such as Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). The Fairways for Freedom program provides combat-injured Veterans with instruction and practice in evidence-informed, clinically tested, self-regulation techniques; opportunities for therapeutic, recreational, and community-building social activities; training on healthy lifestyle choices; and education about community-based Veterans resources for post-retreat reintegration.
Our goal is also to connect leaders in the business community (Ambassador/Donors) with combat-injured Veterans through the game of golf. Business professionals serve as not only sponsors to the Veterans, but also as mentors, and, in turn, learn what true sacrifice is all about. The great courses of Ireland and Scotland, for example, provide an exhilarating environment for building these relationships.
We’re Seeking Two More Ambassadors for NW Ireland
In late September 2019 we will again tour the best courses of Ireland’s Inishowen Peninsula and stay the entire week at a first-class golf hotel. A limited number of ambassador spots are still available, so don’t delay if you want to be part of this magnificent experience!
We will play six incredible rounds, including both courses at Ballyliffin (the Old and Glashedy, site of the 2018 Irish Open), both courses at Rosapenna (Sandy Hills and Old Tom Morris), and the magnificent and redesigned Portsalon Golf Club. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to be an ambassador on this trip or if you would like to sponsor a veteran.
