On October 1st, 120 golfers came together participate in the 5th annual National Capital Region Security Forum Charity Golf Tournament to benefit Kennedy Krieger Institute’s Center for Brain Injury Recovery. Participants enjoyed a day of golf, followed by a great evening filled with fun, camaraderie and lots of laughter.
The National Capital Region Security Forum (NCRSF), a group of security professionals throughout the DC Metro area, chose Kennedy Krieger Institute as the beneficiary of their tournament after David Sawczuk told fellow members of the forum about his personal experiences with the Institute.
David’s son, Ben, received life-changing rehabilitation at Kennedy Krieger’s Pediatric Brain Injury Program after a serious accident at age 8. Ben had to relearn everything—walking, talking, breathing, and swallowing—but 10 years later, he’s doing great.
Support from the event has helped fund brain injury research, patient transition from hospital to home, as well as much needed wheelchairs.
