Adpearance Takes to the Fairway in the Swing Fore Diabetes Golf Tournament

Aug 3rd 2012

The Adpearance Team took a day off from the digital marketing world to participate in the Swing Fore Diabetes Golf Tournament, an annual event benefiting the Gales Creek Camp for kids and teens living with Type I Diabetes.

On July 20, 2012, the Adpearance Team hit the fairway as a part of the Swing Fore Diabetes Golf Tournament.  This annual golf tournament, hosted by the Rock Creek Country Club in Portland, Oregon, benefits the Gales Creek Camp, a summer camp for kids and teens living with Type I Diabetes. Adpearance sponsored a hole at the event, as well as participated in the tournament, and was proud to partner with various other sponsors to help change the lives of children and families affected by Type I diabetes.

The Gales Creek Camp began in 1953 as a way to help kids and teens living with Type I Diabetes manage their daily health. The Gales Creek Camp was founded on the belief that having diabetes does not have to prevent individuals from leading healthy, active lifestyles. Counselors function as mentors and motivational figures for the campers, sharing their experiences and serving as real life examples of living with diabetes. Lessons about health and wellbeing are intertwined with fun activities, and throughout the weeklong camp, campers learn to live day-to-day with diabetes, while also working on perfecting their slice. Events like the Swing Fore Diabetes Golf Tournament keep registration costs low for campers, fund scholarships for kids and families in need, and help provide a life-changing experience for adolescents.

As a sponsor of Hole 8 at the tournament, Adpearance couldn’t have been more excited to join in the festivities. Meeting campers and participants in the Tournament was a highlight of the event, and outfitting the players and campers in custom Adpearance sunglasses was especially fun. Adpearance provided eyewear for each participant in the tournament, as well as campers and counselors. Check out some of our shady new friends:
