Putt for Passion

Over $125,000 Raised!

On Monday, May 22nd, Athletes for Hope held its 1st Annual Putt for Passion Golf Tournament at Kenwood Country Club in Bethesda, MD.  All proceeds from the event will support AFH’s Whole Being Athlete mental health youth school program expansion in the Washington, D.C. area, and will help grow our AFH University work at Bowie State University, Howard University, and Georgetown University to serve the broader community.  

The day featured an array of fun on-course competitions, as well as a silent auction and raffle.  Additional highlights included an appearance from the Washington Commanders Command Force, a golfer dynamic warm-up by Zac Cohen of Cohen Health and Performance, and sports equipment donations supporting Leveling the Playing Field.

A huge thank you to all of our terrific event sponsors, supporters, and participants. We look forward to seeing you next year for AFH’s 2nd Annual Putt for Passion Golf Tournament! Stay tuned for more details!
