FOR DISABLED VETERANS GOLF PROVIDES ANOTHER PATH ON THE ROAD TO RECOVERY
When Jeff Burley, the Adaptive Sports Manager for Salt Lake County Parks and Recreation, went looking for a golf course to introduce a new program using golf as a vehicle to teach leisure skills to miltary veterans suffering from a variety of emotional, physical, and intellectural challenges including histories of chemical dependency, he went no farther than Mick Riley Golf Course and PGA Head Golf Professioanla, Steve Young.
Under the tutlelage of William R. Klinger, aka Doctor Bill, a recreation therapist at the Salt Lake Veterans Administration and based on the success of the Junior Adaptive Golf Programs, Klinger, Burley, and Young decided to offer a program to out-patients at the Veterans Hospital with histories of physical disabilities including chemical dependencies. The program’s stated goal was: “Recovery through Recreation, which will improve the participant’s life skills and improve their lives.” Funding was secured by Burley through the Return and Restore grant from the National Recreation and Parks Association. The program was implemented in the spring of this year with a block of two hour skill sessions spread over a month and a mini-tournament on Mick Riley’s Executive course.
Adding greatly to this program was the establishment of a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization by James Huber, a disabled veteran who had participated in many of the Veterans Hospital's recreation programs, and who wanted to form a foundation that would raise money to support these worthwhile programs without having to rely on government funding.
Skin cancer is a deadly desease. I have personally lost two close friends to melanoma. My daughter was also diagnosed with stage-three of this desease but luckly we got it in time and she has been cancer free for three years now.
That is why it is so very important to get annual checkups from your dermatologist and use an effective suncreen when you play golf. In fact anytime you are outdoors you should apply protection.
The Rocky Mountain Golf Network welcomes back SmartShield as our exclusive sunscreen provider. Skin cancer can be almost 100% preventable with the use of suncreen. And SmartShield is, in my opinion, the best in the market.
