We all know that no athlete or athletic team has ever achieved their goal of victory by working alone. Every successful effort requires a game plan and teamwork. The same certainly applies to the lives of young people. If they are going to win in life, we must all work together for them and with them. This is what FCA Golf JAX’s 2017 IRONMAN Golf Marathon was all about.
Sixteen committed IRONMEN and IRONWOMEN arrived at Glen Kernan Golf & Country Club on Monday morning, March 20 to hit the links from sun-up to sun-down! What a fun and special day it was playing 100 holes of golf in a single day! Each participant heard several people ask if playing that much golf in a single day was even possible. Certainly 100 holes is a daunting challenge, but all 16 committed participants finished with plenty of sunlight to spare!
Because of our IRONMEN and IRONWOMEN’s efforts, as well as the kindness and generosity of nearly 300 financial sponsors, FCA Golf JAX and NE Florida FCA raised upwards of $47,000 from this event. The funds raised will ensure that:
- FCA Golf JAX Combines continue to expand their reach and impact to area juniors, coaches and professionals desiring to grow both athletically and personally
- Local juniors can attend a summer golf camp through the assistance of the Captain Bill Lewis Scholarship Fund
- Firm foundational footing is in place for the launch of a 2018 FCA Golf Camp in the greater Jacksonville area
- Northeast Florida FCA continues to expand its ministry to and through coaches and athletes in the greater Jacksonville area.
A BIG THANK YOU for everyone’s support of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes! Our supporters made possible not only a great day, but continued eternal impact in the lives of athletes, coaches and professionals throughout northeast Florida!
