It will be a full day of community service for women golfers who’ve come to Fishers for the LPGA My Marsh Golf Classic.
These LPGA hopefuls will meet Meals on Wheels volunteers Tuesday, May 29 at 10:15 a.m. at Riverview Hospital to deliver meals across the Town of Fishers.
LPGA My Marsh Classic players will also visit Riley Hospital for Children at Indiana University Health on Tuesday afternoon to learn more about children affected by muscular dystrophy and related disease. Players will gather at 1 p.m. at the front desk at Riley to tour the MD clinic.
LPGA My Marsh Classic tickets sold at Marsh stores benefit the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA), which funds worldwide neuromuscular research, health care services, advocacy and education.
The 54-hole championship runs June 1-3 at The Hawthorns Golf & CC.
Golfers, including Carmel’s Aimee Neff, will meet children who bravely battle a serious illness every day. A Riley physician will brief them and give them a tour of the MD clinic.
Later that afternoon, children and families served by MDA will be on hand with other youth participants for the Junior Golf Clinic at 4:30 p.m. at the Hawthorns Golf & Country Club, learning the fundamentals of the game in a fun and exciting atmosphere.
Clinic instructors include LPGA Symetra Tour professional golfers.
MDA is the nonprofit health agency dedicated to curing muscular dystrophy, ALS and related diseases by funding worldwide research. The Association also provides comprehensive health care and support services, advocacy and education.
