We are so proud to have Quality of Life + as part of our alliance and have loved working with students to develop adaptive equipment for our participants. Projects so far have made it easier for individuals with disabilities to participate in archery, sporting clays and fishing. These real-world problem solving experiences are priceless opportunities for everyone involved. We look forward to further projects with QL+ and their partner schools.

Golf Tournament Fundraiser hosted by Rocky Mountain Harley-Davidson
River Deep Foundation was honored to be chosen by Rocky Mountain Harley-Davidson (RMHD) to be the beneficiary of their 20th Annual Golf Tournament Fundraiser! Our outings programs rely on support like this, so we can provide veterans a path to healing for the physical, mental, and emotional effects of their physical injuries and other 'invisible' ones like TBI and PTSD.
The day opened with a ceremonious presentation of the colors by the color guard from Ft. Carson SRU. Command Sergeant Major King then spoke about River Deep and how important our programs are to helping the helping the soldiers while they are active duty and veterans. We began the tournament with over 100 golfers participating!
Those who have been to golf tournaments before know that there is often a hole-in-one challenge with huge prize like a car, or in this case, a motorcycle. If a golfer gets a hole-in-one at a particular hole, they win the prize. But it never happens, right? However, on this special day, golfer Lauren Penland was up to the challenge and WON a new Harley-Davidson live-wire electric motorcycle adding a lot of extra excitement to the event! Congratulations, Lauren!
The event raised over $10,000 for River Deep Foundation. We are so grateful to Kathy and Marina at RMHD for their support and their entire staff, who volunteered on their day off to assist with the event as well as the sponsors and participants who made the day possible. Mike and the staff at Meridian provided a wonderful lunch and as always, impeccable service!
