Each year, more than 15,000 kids and young adults are diagnosed with cancer. The Chiera Family Foundation has teamed up with Bridgestone Golf, so now, by playing golf with a special golf ball, you can make a difference. By purchasing a N.I.C.K.'s CAMP golf ball, you can help kids who are battling cancer attend a special summer camp called NICK's CAMP, send young adults who have beaten cancer to college, and even teach young cancer patients life lessons and golf through The First Tee of Broward.
But that's not all! Bridgestone Golf merchandise will be awarded to people who send in photos and videos. Also, when people visit ChieraFamilyFoundation.org, they can order the golf balls to be shipped to them monthly or quarterly. Companies or country clubs can also logo the balls on the opposite side for co-branding at other charity golf tournaments.
