The Graham and Ruby DeLaet Foundation launched a twitter campaign to raise funds in support of the Golf in Schools program.

Running until September 21, the Foundation will donate $1 for every twitter follower gained at the ‘@Fore_Kids’ twitter handle.

The Graham and Ruby DeLaet Foundation is focused on improving the health and wellness of children and supporting the development of junior golfers at all stages.

Golf in Schools was developed in 2009 by Physical Health Education (PHE) Canada in partnership with Golf Canada and the PGA of Canada. Since its inception, the program has been delivered to over 2,500 elementary and high schools across Canada.

“It is fantastic to receive support from Graham and his foundation for this great cause,” said Jeff Thompson, Golf Canada’s Chief Sport Officer. “Having Canada’s no. 1 golfer support the future of golf in Canada really says a lot.”

The Golf in Schools program consists of safety-approved golf equipment, along with a relevant teaching resource for teachers to deliver the lesson plans to students.
