Tee It Up for the Troops believes in engaging and inspiring communities across the United States to do great things on behalf of the military men and women who have served and sacrificed so much for our freedoms. Tee It Up for the Troops combines golf events with an inspirational ceremony, instilling a sense of pride, honor, respect and appreciation for all those who have served and given so greatly. Since our founding in 2005, Tee It Up for the Troops has inspired communities to conduct more than 360 fundraising events in more than 40 states across the USA.
Through these events, Tee It Up for the Troops has become a fundraising engine for several local and national non-profit partners including Fisher House Foundation and Disabled Sports USA, allowing them to focus on what they do best: helping wounded veterans and their families to heal, transition, grow and thrive!
Tee It Up for the Troops and its partners have accomplished the following:
- Assisted more than 27,000 military families, saving families more than $44 million in lodging costs, plus food and transportation.
- Provided more than 10,000 wounded service members and their families with year-round, nationwide programs in more than 30 different sports, free of charge.
- Reunited over 230 wounded veterans who were separated due to battlefield injuries, changes in rehabilitation, or other reasons beyond their control.
- Helped two military families to launch their own business, and hire other veterans and family members, through our Operation HeartFirst initiative with Anytime Fitness.
Together, we make a difference!
Living or working in such a magnificent place like Mirasol makes it very easy for us to take for granted that there are men and women of the United States Armed Forces who make daily sacrifices in order to protect our freedom. It was an honor for the members at Mirasol to have the opportunity to show their support and pride for our troops and to support Tee It Up for the Troops. –Matt Lambert, General Manager, The Country Club at Mirasol
The Tee It Up for the Troops initiative has offered a flexible, solutions-based opportunity to anyone who shares the desire to enhance the lives of America’s Freedom Fighters. Be it volunteering personal resources or generating funds through special events, everyone who engages in the efforts of TIUFTT has the opportunity to say “Thank You” to our soldiers, the men and women of the United States Armed Forces. CMAA and the Club Foundation have never experienced an organization with a better record of “delivering the mission.” TIUFTT has got it figured out. You are truly a beacon in the darkest of night!–Jim Singerling, CEO, CMAA
There is nothing more important than supporting the men and women serving in our military. Because of their sacrifices, we are able to enjoy the freedoms we have in this country. Too often, that is forgotten as we go about our daily lives. Tee It Up for the Troops honors soldiers and their families by raising funds and awareness. Each of us owes a debt to those who have answered the call of duty. Joining forces with Tee It Up for the Troops is one way to begin paying back that debt. I am proud to be a part of an organization whose mission is to care for those who care for us.–Randall McDaniel, Retired NFL Player for the Minnesota Vikings
