CGB is never one to back down from a challenge, especially one that includes a little bit of public humiliation for the sake of a good cause. That’s why the CGB is teaming up with A Moment of Magic Foundation for its Tee Off in Tutus Challenge, making sure this September’s Pediatric Cancer Awareness Month is one for the books. More on the challenge in a bit — first comes the important stuff.
According to the American Childhood Cancer Organization, nearly 16,000 children are diagnosed with cancer each year in the U.S. alone, the number exceeds 300,000 per year globally. That’s thousands of lives forever changed after a visit to the doctor’s office, families included. Charity alone can’t pay for a cure — though researchers certainly put that money to good use — but it can go a long way in relieving some of the stress and anxiety of those on the front lines battling the disease.
That’s where A Moment of Magic comes in, sending college-age volunteers dressed as the most famous princesses and superheroes into children’s hospitals around the country, bringing joy and loving kindness and lasting memories to all they meet. Founded as The Princess Project by Kylee McGrane and Margaret McAndrew, two college students “on a mission to spread some magic, and a little bit of pink in the busy world,” the organization has exploded into a pediatric cancer awareness powerhouse with multiple chapters and hundreds of volunteers nationwide.
Enter CGB and the Tee Off in Tutus Challenge. Follow along this month as the CGB crew takes the tee box at our favorite local courses donning our tutus — and sorry in advance for probably flashing more of our man bits than you want to see. We’re challenging you too: Grab your foursome and some tutus and send us your Instagram videos with the hashtag #teeoffintutus, or make a donation to support the cause. We’ll repost our favorite videos and give away a CGB-style prize pack for the best submission at the end of the month.
