The Cooper Challenge
Miriam’s Promise is celebrating 35 years!
On Monday, September 14, we will host the 20th annual Mary Cooper Honorary Golf Challenge at Bluegrass Country Club in Hendersonville. As well as our main golf event, we are offering people who may not feel comfortable golfing right now, other ways to be a part of this event. The #35forthePromise: Cooper Challenge is a new and exciting way for us to get folks involved and to share our story.
The Mary Cooper Honorary Golf Challenge will be just how you remember it, with a few minor changes. To abide by social distancing guidelines we have instituted a one-player one-cart standard, but family members and friends may share a cart if they wish. Breakfast will be a grab and go affair to limit the congregation of more than ten people in a certain area at one time; lunch will be delivered as usual on the course. Because we want to make sure and honor everyone who participates in the challenge and give special thanks to those who raise the most money for Miriam’s Promise, the 19th Hole After Party has been moved to an online event that will take place at 7PM the night of the golf challenge (link and more info will be provided at a later date). All who participate in the Golf Challenge will receive a golf shirt, so make sure you add your shirt size to your registration!
If you are not a golfer or you don’t feel comfortable getting out of the house for an event, or you would simply like to help Miriam’s Promise continue to fulfill our mission, then #35forthePromise: The Cooper Challenge is for YOU! Do you think you could get 35 friends to donate $35 dollars to Miriam’s Promise? Can you get 35 friends to donate $1 to Miriam’s Promise for every mile you walk/bike/run? Can you walk/bike/run 35 miles? (Not all at once!) Can you do 35 summersaults – this time in a row! – and ask 35 people to donate $1 for each one? (This will need to be filmed for the enjoyment of the staff!) Can you get 35 people to donate to Miriam’s Promise based on what day of the month it is? Do you have a different skill/hobby/activity that you could do instead of the ones listed? We encourage individuality, so go for it!! Prizes will be awarded to those who raise the most money for Miriam’s Promise and everyone who participates will be honored during the 19th Hole After Party streamed online on September 14th at 7 PM (link and more info will be provided at a later date). All those who participate in the #35forthePromise Challenge will receive a T-shirt, so make sure to add your shirt size to your registration!
We hope you will join us for one of these two challenges and help share the story of Miriam’s Promise to those who may not have had a chance to hear about us. If you have any questions please feel free to call us at 615-292-3500 or send an email to Memory Strong.
