Swing to Cure Golf Event: A Good Time for a Good Cause
The Fourth Annual "Swing to Cure" Golf Event, held May 21, 2012 at the University of Michigan Golf Course, raised over $58,000 for diabetes research. Proceeds from the event benefit the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and the Michigan Comprehensive Diabetes Center.
Swing to Cure Diabetes was founded by former University of Michigan football player and Varnum attorney Rich Hewlett and his wife, Chris. The couple began raising money and awareness for juvenile diabetes research after their son, Jeffrey, was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes 12 years ago.
The annual golf outing is attended by many of Rich's Wolverine teammates and coaches, including former U of M head coaches Gary Moeller and Lloyd Carr.
