Our Golf Marathon in 2018 was a huge success! We can't wait for 2019!
Please check back here for details and updates about the 2019 event!
On November 11, 2018, Major League Baseball (MLB) Umpires and Minor League Baseball (MiLB) Umpires, along with caring friends of UMPS CARE, traded in their baseballs and bats for a set of irons and putters. This army of dedicated fundraisers have committed to the challenge of playing a 100-hole golf marathon at the Augusta Ranch Golf Club in Mesa, Arizona. They raised thousands of dollars to support UMPS CARE Charities and the children and families we support. Proceeds from the Golf Marathon allow us to continue to provide the following:
Memorable Build-A-Bear Workshop experiences for pediatric patients coping with cancer and other serious illnesses
Big League experiences at ballparks across the country for at-risk youth and children awaiting adoption
Financial support for college for children adopted out of the foster care system after the age of 10
