Golfers raise money for Youth Challenge

Youth Challenge alumni Sara Steimle and Kristen Hord keep score at the putting contest.

More than 80 golfers enjoyed a beautiful day at Avon Oaks Country Club while supporting the 25th Annual Youth Challenge Golf Outing on June 27.  Close to $10,000 was raised to directly help fund Youth Challenge programs. Thank you to all of the golfers, sponsors and volunteers who helped make it a fun and prosperous event.

Youth Challenge is a non-profit corporation that brings together children with physical disabilities and youth volunteers for year-round adapted sports and recreational activities. For 37 years, YC has been making it possible for children with physical disabilities to enjoy sports and activities like kayaking, horseback riding, skiing and bowling.

On August 26, The Scott & Julie Mawaka Charitable Foundation hosts the 10th Annual Golf Outing to benefit Youth Challenge at The Shaker Heights Country Club. If you are interested in golfing or sponsorship opportunities, please call 440-892-1001 or visit
