Article & Photos by Jackie Holfelder

The Mark Garwood SHARE Foundation held its first Racquets For Recovery Tennis and Pickleball Tournament at North River Shores Tennis Club in Stuart on Saturday, May 22. All proceeds benefited the non-profit’s Phoenix Scholarship program.

Women’s doubles tennis and pickleball and men’s doubles tennis and pickleball games all saw spirited but good-natured competition as participants were reminded of the reason for the event by moving and emotional speakers.

Volunteers Dr. Juan Giachino and Fern Giachino roasted a succulent pig, which was part of a delicious picnic lunch enjoyed by over 175 participants and guests.

Jessie Ewing, the first of 32 recipients to be awarded a Phoenix Scholarship by the non-profit, shared with attendees it was not only being given the financial means to complete her education, but also the emotional support and unconditional love she has received through the Mark Garwood SHARE Foundation that have changed her life.

A video of Jessie’s remarks can be found at “racquetsforrecovery.org”.

Both Erica and John Garwood spoke of the tragic loss of their 24-year-old son, Mark, in 2014 and the subsequent community outreach goals for the Mark Garwood SHARE Foundation established in his memory.

The primary mission of the Mark Garwood SHARE Foundation is to provide educational scholarships to local men and women who are recovering from the devastating effects of substance abuse and who wish to initiate or resume their education.

The non-profit also directly supports Phoenix House, a women’s recovery residence; Bridge House, a transitional facility providing bed and board for men in recovery with no means of support; and Clean Start Backpacks, which contain essential hygiene items distributed to individuals just entering recovery.

"BBBS Golf- A-Round: A New Way to Play"

21 May GOlf 1

Big Brothers Big Sisters of St. Lucie, Indian River and Okeechobee Counties (BBBS) took a different approach with their Annual Golf Tournament this year. During the months of March and April, golfers along the Treasure Coast were able to golf at their own course with their chosen foursome, all while supporting Big Brothers Big Sisters.

"Though not the typical golf tournament, we adapted to a new format in Covid times. Foursomes came out and had a great time on their own schedules - one of our teams won the Ladies flight with some terrific scoring. Fluidity in different times helped raise a good amount for BBBS! Thanks to all that played!" says Chris Smith, BBBS Golf-A-Round Committee Member.

The Golf-A-Round not only exceeded funding that is normally generated at the traditional golf event, it also allowed golfers from the tri-county area to support the cause from the comfort of their own course and on their own schedule. All reservations about how the revamped event would be received were put to rest with the success of the event and the positive feedback received from the golfers.

“The participating golfers enjoyed a good competitive game on their home course. The week-long time frame provided some great flexibility in scheduling a tee time. Some of our career women were able to be included in the event for the first time.” said Bonnie Wilson, Golf-A-Round Committee Member.

Over 100 talented golfers participated in the Golf-A-Round, and one foursome in each of the three flights claimed the overall victory after all the verified scores were reported. From our Mixed Flight, we congratulate Donald Nuelle, Felicia Nuelle, Marilyn Sims, and Jeff Atkins who played the Legacy Course at PGA Village and finished with a score of -30. From our Women’s Flight, we congratulate Lorena Cook, Elizabeth Parker, Robin Bessin, and Sue McSorley who played the Moorings at Hawk’s Nest and finished with a score of -21. From our Men’s Flight, we congratulate Sandy Samson, John Gammino, Wayne Samson, and Richard Duch who played at the Vero Beach Country Club and finished with a score of -18.

We are so grateful to our BBBS Golf-A-Round Committee Members and event supporters for embracing this new format and making it such a success. We would also like to thank our BBBS Golf-A-Round Sponsors: Publix Super Markets Charities, Kendacar Foundation, Mr. Brad Lorimier, and the many other amazing individuals and organizations who helped make this a record breaking event.

Big Brothers Big Sisters is a non-profit organization whose mission is to create and support one-to-one mentoring relationships that ignite the power and promise of youth.

Sit Less, Swing Better Restore the Rhythm

Article by: Judy Alverez - First Tee

Is your swing feeling stiff? Are you sitting for several hours a day? Your shoulders could be part of the problem. The anatomical term for your shoulder blades is “scapulae”. Your upper arm bone – the humerus – connects to your scapula. They work together to help you make a full shoulder rotation and swing on plane. This interaction is called “scapulohumeral rhythm”.

20 Sept First Tee Photo

Sitting too much messes with this rhythm because it pulls your shoulders forward, disrupting the scapula muscles, causing them to tilt and become unstable. When this happens, your golf swing will be restricted and you may experience pain at your shoulder blades.
