My name is Drew Miller and I am a senior at Allen High School in Allen, Texas. I spent the last 4 years playing golf for the Allen High golf team. I have been playing competitive golf since I was 7 years old. I am lucky to be able to play the game that I love and I realize that there are many people who are not as fortunate as I am. I wanted to be able to use my high school golf career to give back to my community and raise money for charity. This is why I started this journey.
I called my fundraiser ‘Birdies for Charity’. I got sponsors to donate a dollar amount for every birdie I scored in an official round of high school golf. The charity I chose to raise money for was Carson’s Crusaders Foundation. Carson’s Crusaders Foundation provides support and assistance to children with rare solid tumors and their families and promotes/develops programs and services to improve the quality of life and medical outcomes of these children and their families. I learned about Carson’s Crusaders when my mother taught Carson Richardson, a kindergarten student with cancer at Boon Elementary School in Allen, Texas. Carson touched our lives in many ways and inspired me to find a way to help. For more information on Carson’s Crusaders Foundation please visit: carsonscrusadersfoundation.org
When you can make a true difference in someone's life, it feels good. Numerous people helped me do that. Together we raised $12,131.00. I don't know how to say thank you to everyone that helped support me on this journey. I am moving away to play golf for the University of Arkansas, Fort Smith and I want to challenge another young golfer to take over my mission. Please contact me if you know someone that is interested.
Sponsor B $5/birdie
For the fall 2010, I played 4 tournaments and scored 11 birdies (holes under par). Sponsor A would donate $22 and Sponsor B would donate $55 to Carson's Crusaders Foundation. Each sponsor will have the option of donating a flat amount if I am subject to injury, or I score too many birdies.
The above example is only an example, you may sponsor any $amount you wish.
