Our Mis­sion

Our Annu­al Golf Out­ing Event

Jeff S. Pierce, D.O. found­ed Ath­letes Unlim­it­ed in 1996 with the deter­mi­na­tion to pro­vide an out­let where ath­letes with dis­abil­i­ties are able to par­tic­i­pate in sports social­ly and com­pet­i­tive­ly. Ath­letes Unlimited’s guid­ing phi­los­o­phy is that life is not intend­ed to be a spec­ta­tor sport. Every­one, regard­less of abil­i­ty, can ben­e­fit from par­tic­i­pat­ing in sports. Each year Ath­letes Unlim­it­ed hosts a golf out­ing to help raise mon­ey for our ath­letes. This year we were proud to host our 17th Annu­al Golf Out­ing for Ath­letes Unlim­it­ed. With the sup­port of our spon­sors we raised over $60,000!

We believe that an annu­al golf event is an excel­lent way to bring peo­ple togeth­er for a good cause regard­less of age, gen­der or abil­i­ty. Each year we are for­tu­nate enough to have spon­sors donate auc­tion items to help our cause. With com­pet­i­tive and recre­ation­al golf oppor­tu­ni­ties, every­one has an oppor­tu­ni­ty to have a great time, meet new peo­ple and sup­port Ath­letes Unlim­it­ed. With all of our gen­er­ous sup­port­ers, we were able to send many of our ath­letes to com­pete nationally.

22nd Annu­al Ath­letes Unlim­it­ed Golf Outing

We are excit­ed to invite you to par­tic­i­pate in this year­ly fund-rais­er to ben­e­fit Ath­letes Unlim­it­ed. Mon­day August 5th, 2019 at Oak Pointe Coun­try Club. Ath­letes Unlim­it­ed is a non-prof­it orga­ni­za­tion ded­i­cat­ed to pro­vid­ing social, recre­ation­al and ath­let­ic out­lets to peo­ple with dis­abil­i­ties. Our guid­ing phi­los­o­phy is that life is not intend­ed to be a spec­ta­tor sport. Every­one, regard­less of abil­i­ty, can ben­e­fit from par­tic­i­pat­ing in sports. It con­tin­ues to be Ath­letes Unlimited’s pri­ma­ry goal to pro­vide these oppor­tu­ni­ties to as many phys­i­cal­ly chal­lenged indi­vid­u­als as possible.
