Another marathon? No Problem!
For those who are familiar with The Fund, you know that every year we have the Ouimet Annual Golf Marathon, believed to be the highest fundraising golf marathon in the U.S. This year's event raised over $260,000 and has brought the grand total since the event's inception in 1993 to $4.5 Million! Since we do the golf marathon every year we figured, why not take on another marathon? Although running for hours is a little different than playing golf from sun up to sun down the reasoning behind it is still the same: to raise money for schoalrships to help deflate the constant rising cost of a college education.
The Francis Ouimet Scholarship Fund is committed to providing need and merit based scholarship aid to students who have demonstrated a strong work ethic by having completed at least two years of service to golf. The Ouimet Fund rewards accomplishment through the competitive, renewable scholarships. The Fund is dedicated to providing the golfing community with an opportunity to give back to golf and society by assisting youth in furthering their education.
