The Castaway Challenge is a campaign devoted to children as they are our future. We want to show them that being a part of something for the greater good can also be fun and rewarding in itself. Please see below missions of the organizations we are raising money and awareness for throughout this campaign.
St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital: The mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment. Consistent with the vision of our founder Danny Thomas, no child is denied treatment based on race, religion or a family's ability to pay.
The First Tee: Mission: To impact the lives of young people by providing educational programs that build character, instill life-enhancing values and promote healthy choices through the game of golf.
Sunshine Foundation: Sunshine Foundation’s sole purpose is to answer the dreams of chronically ill, seriously ill, physically challenged and abused children ages three to eighteen, whose families cannot fulfill their requests due to financial strain that the child’s illness may cause.
National Alliance for Youth Sports: The mission of Hook A Kid On Golf is to provide communities with a comprehensive youth golf program that eliminates all the obstacles that discourage youngsters from learning and continuing to play golf while instilling in them an understanding of golf's rules, etiquette and history. Hook A Kid On Golf provides communities with three levels of curriculum and all the tools necessary to accomplish an organized youth golf program. These tools include providing quality equipment, affordable instruction, a structured system to learn how to play the game on the course and finally, a format for play that includes competition but stresses fun and learning.
