Mark Wellman's Golf
Challenge is a community event that brings athletes with
disabilities, celebrities, Olympians, and businesses together for an
enriching evening and challenging golf tournament.
This two-day event will begin Thursday with a ‘Meet the Celebrities’
evening at Coyote Moon, home of the Brad Bell signature golf course,
where a celebrity will be matched with each team. This celebration,
open to the public, will include an educational forum, silent
auction, Charbay Martini Bar, live music and delectable appetizers.
The Golf Tournament will be Friday morning with a 10:00AM shotgun
start at the Tahoe Donner Golf Course, where an awards party and
banquet at ‘The Lodge’ will follow.
The third annual fundraiser will support the programs of Disabled
Sports USA, part of a national non-profit organization, who
is dedicated to providing affordable, inclusive physical and
recreational activities that build health and confidence. Mark
Wellman’s climbing methods and sports gear adaptation, which brought
him to achieve his historic ascents of El Capitan and Half Dome in
Yosemite National Park, are becoming increasingly recognized and
used in programs and classes throughout the country. Through No
Limits, Mark now dedicates his time to improve the quality of life
for adults and children with disabilities, including our injured
American war veterans. The inspiration and encouragement he provides
through educational presentations and adaptive sports seminars,
assists in building the skills, enthusiasm and self-esteem it takes
to enhance the quality of life as a community member, becoming more
involved in the workplace and at home.
