2021 Purple Tee Beneficiaries

Purple Tee Supports Wounded Vets

With the COVID Pandemic, many outpatient mental health programs for veterans are on hold or being held virtually. Some residential mental health facilities have closed. Under these conditions, suicide hotline calls by veterans were up by 12% in March, just a few weeks into the crisis. More than ever, we need to support organizations like SMGA and Team River Runners who directly support our wounded veterans by using golf and kayaking as therapy to improve their mental and physical well being.

The Salute Military Golf Association

The SMGA provides rehabilitative golf programs, experiences, and family inclusive golf opportunities for post 9/11 wounded war veterans in an effort to improve the quality of life for these American heroes. Eligible veterans and service members include those wounded or injured in post 9/11 military operations, including those with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and/or Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI).

Team River Runner

Team River Runner provides all veterans and their families an opportunity to find health, healing, community purpose, and new challenges through adventure and adaptive paddle sports. The Purple Tee supports the Walter Reed chapter of Team River Runner.

MBR Foundation

The MBR Foundation supports Metro Bethesda Rotary Club’s efforts to provide humanitarian assistance locally and internationally, and to promote peace, understanding, and educational and cultural advancement. It is operated exclusively for educational and charitable purposes in accordance with Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
