Challenge America Military Opportunities (CAMO) was created to connect military and their families to resources in their own communities. Established as a nonpro t organization in 2009, Challenge America saw the need to bridge the gap between the public and private sectors. Service members and military families are inundated with information but don’t know where to turn. There are over 100,000 organizations working with our military on a national basis and connection in the community is the answer.
The Fisher House
A Fisher House is “a home away from home” for families of patients receiving medical care at major military and VA medical centers. The homes are normally located within walking distance of the treatment facility or have transportation available. There are 70 Fisher Houses located on 24 military installations and 27 VA medical centers. Many more houses are under construction or in design.
The Rick Herrema Foundation
“Rick’s Place” will be a peaceful place free from
stigma where military families can do what they are naturally inclined to do anyways - spend time together, using recreation and the beauty of the outdoors as a catalyst for reconnecting and strengthening their family relationships. As part of The Rick Herrema Foundation’s (RHF), Rick’s Place will provide a fun, safe environment in the form of a lodge and outdoor recreation center for military families. Located minutes from Fort Bragg, NC, the 26-acre campus and its high quality facilities will be open daily and free for military families. Construction will begin in 2016.
Threesomes will team up with one wounded vet, active duty or retired military personnel for the day. Robert Wrenn, Rich Beem and Todd Anderson will be leading a golf clinic before the tournament. Help us to raise awareness and support our heroes, their families along with Challenge America, Fisher House and The Rick Herrema Foundation.
The tournament includes the golf clinic, buffet lunch, cart, caddy, snacks, drinks and the post-tournament reception.
