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. Athletes Unlimited hosts a golf outing each year to help raise money for our athletes.

We believe an annual golf event is an excellent way to unite people for a good cause regardless of age, gender, or ability. We are fortunate to have sponsors donate auction items each year 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.

27th 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, 2024 at Fieldstone Golf 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.
