Hit N.I.C.K.'s CAMP Balls and Help Kids Battling Cancer

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.

Once you purchase the golf balls, take a photo or video hitting a N.I.C.K.'s CAMP golf ball in the most unusual place. Use your imagination - strike a pose, hit with a group of people, or even a celebrity! The top photos or videos posted will be judged with the winner receiving a free trip entry to the N.I.C.K.'s CAMP golf tournament in South Florida. Just e-mail your entry to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or use #playitforward on social media. Then, play it forward by buying another dozen to send to a golf buddy!

But that's not all! Bridgestone Golf merchandise will be awarded to people who send in photos and videos. Also, when people visit, 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.
