Drew Miller

We did it!  The final total was $12,131.00!

My name is Drew Miller and I am a freshman at the University of Arkansas, Fort Smith.  I spent the last 4 years playing golf for the Allen High golf team in Allen, Texas.  I have been playing competitive golf since I was 7 years old.  I am lucky to be able to play the game that I love and I realize that there are many people who are not as fortunate as I am.  I wanted to be able to use my high school golf career to give back to my community and raise money for charity.  This is why I started this journey.

I called my fundraiser ‘Birdies for Charity’.  I got sponsors to donate a dollar amount for every birdie I scored in an official round of high school golf.  The charity I chose to raise money for was Carson’s Crusaders Foundation.  Carson’s Crusaders Foundation provides support and assistance to children with rare solid tumors and their families and promotes/develops programs and services to improve the quality of life and medical outcomes of these children and their families.  I learned about Carson’s Crusaders when my mother taught Carson Richardson, a kindergarten student with cancer at Boon Elementary School in Allen, Texas.  Carson touched our lives in many ways and inspired me to find a way to help.  For more information on Carson’s Crusaders Foundation please visit:  carsonscrusadersfoundation.org

When you can make a true difference in someone's life, it feels good.  Numerous people helped me do that.  Together we raised $12,131.00.  I don't know how to say thank you to everyone that helped support me on this journey.  I moved away to play golf for the University of Arkansas, Fort Smith and I want to challenge another young golfer to take over my mission.  Please contact me if you know someone that is interested.
