Original Post:

Support the 16th Annual Golf  Classic benefitting Michigan From The Heart!  It takes place Saturday, June 16th, 2012 with special guests Brady Hoke, Zoltan Mesko, Jamar Adams and others.

I’ll be out there, so should you, and I understand they still have a few slots left.  For non-alums, this is great opportunity to experience the great Alister MacKenzie designed Blue course.

Most Michigan fans know about From The Heart – it’s the program that benefits the student-athletes who visit Mott on Thursday evenings.  Here more  info on MFTH:

For nearly 20 years, Michigan From The Heart has served as an inspiration to both University of Michigan student-athletes and the pediatric patients and families of C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital. On Thursday evenings, Michigan From The Heart arranges visits to the hospital by student-athletes who offer a welcome distraction by spending time with patients and families. Patients are then given the opportunity to watch the athletes in action by attending University of Michigan sporting events as special guests of the team. They even meet the players after their games for photos and autographs. Michigan From The Heart provides further support to these children through their contributions to the hospital’s Child and Family Life department and by spearheading smaller, yet much needed initiatives that otherwise go unfunded.

Check out their excellent YouTube promo:

 

They are still looking for sponsors and as this post goes online they still have slots for golfers—check out more info here.
