WHY IS THIS EVENT SO IMPORTANT?
It's important that you know how critical your support of this event is to what we do at OK. This is our inaugural event. The one that started this organization. The shape and scope of it are a true embodiment of how this organization resembles a community and family.
This is the 11th anniversary of the event! It started in 2007 as a memorial to our dear friend and sister, Kathy Garrigan. Since then it has served as a catapult for the OK mission, raising more than $700,000 of net proceeds to support OK programs.
Last year, the team and individual fundraising accounted for more than 15% of all program operations! We are now operating 3 different core programs, serving more than 100 Warriors per year!
Events continue to be our best way of reaching out and connecting with our community. We are excited to make another great effort this year, with you included! This year we hope to raise more than $75,000 in team and player fundraising. Keep an eye on the ticker on the event homepage to track our progress.
