"I will be forever grateful and thankful to the people who make the Tournament of Hope Happen" ~ 2018 Access Fund recipient
What is the Tournament of Hope?
The Tournament of Hope is an annual golf tournament held at Grand Valley Golf & Country Club in Cambridge Ontario. The tournament raises funds to support the Access Fund, a program designed to help people purchase much needed equipment. To date, we have helped 256 people purchase equipment totaling more than $550,000.00.
This Year's Featured Recipient
Kaitlyn is a 22 year old woman with cerebral palsy. She requires the assistance of a wheelchair and has to use a manual one to get out of the house because the front door is not accessible and cannot accommodate a power chair. Travelling in a manual chair restricts her independence greatly as she needs someone to push her chair. The Access Fund was pleased to purchase the installation of a porch lift at the side of Kaitlyn’s home so that she can independently enter and exit. Her mother says “The lift will truly open doors for Katie, give her more freedom and safety to go out and help us with our goal to give her the opportunities to have a better quality of life.”
The 22nd Annual Tournament of Hope will take place on Wednesday, June 12th, 2019 at Grand Valley Golf & Country Club
