The TJ Memorial Fund at this time has one and only one fundraising event; the “TJ Myrick Memorial Golf Tournament” . As we grow, we hope to sponsor other fundraiser in support of other causes.
The TJ Memorial Fund focuses on education in the Healthcare field. We sponsor (2) $5,000. scholarship to nursing students in their junior and senior year at the Loretta Heights School of Nursing at Regis University. We have also partnered up with the Wishbone Foundation and Regis University to give continuing education courses. Wishbone Foundation provides expert bereavement training and resources for nurses who support grieving families experiencing miscarriage, stillborn, and early infant death. Together we are making a difference in this field of nursing, and helping those who are grieving severely and in need of love, understanding, and support.
The 2020 TJ Memorial Golf Tournament
We hope this notice finds you safe and in good health. First of all, thank you for the support you have given us over the past few years; it has been greatly appreciated. It is your generosity that keeps our charity up and going. Without your kindness, we could not continue to provide these scholarships to the students who have the calling to be those amazing and dedicated nurses. Nurses, who right now are jeopardizing their lives to save ours. So again, we thank you.
After much consideration, due to all the uncertainty over the Covid - 19 virus, we have made the very difficult decision to cancel the 2020 TJ Myrick Memorial Golf Tournament. The coronavirus has caused an economic impact that has made it extremely challenging and difficult to organize our tournament, and for us to reach out to our sponsors and participants at this very troublesome financial time. We know that if it’s challenging and difficult for us, it must be for you as well. Therefore, we do not wish to add additional stress to our friends, families, and supporters. You all have been so kind and generous with your donations.
2020 Madison Fliedner’s Fundraiser
To all our golfers who have joined us over the last couple of years, you might remember Madison Fliedner. Madison gave us a helping hand at the tournament last year and she will be there again this year. Madison was our 4th recipient of the TJ Myrick Memorial Endowed Scholarship; in fact, Madison will be graduating this May. We are sure proud of her and all of her accomplishments, and there have been many.
Her one accomplishment I would like to bring to your attention while you are registering for our golf tournament, is her upcoming trip to the Philippines through His Healing Hands. She is so excited she can hardly hold it all in!
Madison will be helping the Filipino people by using all the skills she has learned during her hard work at Loretto Heights School of Nursing. We were honored to provide for her with the TJ scholarship both years. However, without the support from all those who have played in our tournaments and made such generous donations, she might not be going on this marvelous trip.
So please check out her blog which we have posted on our website and learn all about this exciting trip she is about to embark on May 21st thur 30th. Again we thank you for any help you can offer her. Pam and Steve
