Pro-Am Raises Over $400,000 to Support Foundation Programs

The Cameron Champ Foundation Pro-Am at the 2022 Fortinet Championship was a tremendous success, with 108 players coming together to raise more than $400,000.

That money will support our foundation’s programs for young people from diverse backgrounds, including college scholarships, the Mack Champ Invitational, STEM education initiatives and more.

We owe a huge debt of gratitude to Fortinet for hosting our outing for the second consecutive year at the Silverado Resort and Spa in Napa, where Cameron earned his second PGA Tour victory in 2019. And it was great to see so many of our generous supporters come together for such a fun-filled day. Marlon Jones and Jayden Lizama, local junior players and Mack Champ Invitational veterans, were also on the course.

"Can you make it 100 holes" golf marathon graphic

Golfers nationwide are taking on the challenge of playing 100 holes in support of the Cameron Champ Foundation and our programs.

Participants in the Walk With Us Golf Marathon will complete 100 holes, some in a single day and others over multiple days. No matter how they choose to participate, everyone will walk, run and ride while taking hundreds of swings along the way.

Marathoners will collect pledges and donations from friends, family and colleagues to fuel their efforts and get them across the finish line. Every dollar raised will go back into the hands of families around the country to lower the financial burden of playing competitive golf. These resources will benefit junior golfers who aspire to advance their education and play in college.

To learn more and sign up, go to our Walk With Us Golf Marathon homepage.

Dryvebox Partners With Cameron Champ Foundation

The Cameron Champ Foundation is partnering with Dryvebox, the mobile golf simulator company, to make golf more accessible than ever.

We share a vision of bringing the game to underserved communities. Through this partnership, the Cameron Champ Foundation will have its own Dryvebox mobile simulator units that will be used to present the game in fresh and exciting ways to kids who have never held a club before. The top-of-the-line technology in each unit will also serve advanced players looking to improve their games.

Each Dryvebox unit, dubbed a “driving range on wheels,” is equipped with a golf simulator, internal and external TVs, lights, and music. With Dryvebox, the foundation can bring a fun and approachable golf experience to kids, no matter where they are.

“We started the foundation because access to the opportunities golf provides are difficult to come by for black and brown kids,” said Jeff Champ, Co-Founder and CEO of the Cameron Champ Foundation. “Working with Dryvebox gives us the opportunity to break down the barriers we see all the time. We can take a box straight to a school or a park and give kids an authentic experience where they feel comfortable. We can use it to make exciting connections to STEM-related concepts, and our competitive players can use it as a serious game-improvement tool. The sky’s the limit with this partnership.”

Dryvebox’s goal of growing the game of golf through mobile lessons, practice and events will be expanded with this new partnership. Dryvebox participated in the Cameron Champ Foundation Junior Golf Clinic at Chester Washington Golf Course in Los Angeles on Feb. 15. Kids, coaches, and celebrities alike got the chance to hit shots in the mobile simulator at the event, the first of many to come.

“We feel incredibly aligned with the goals, commitments, and aspirations of the Cameron Champ Foundation and are blessed to be working with such a great team that’s making a real difference in the community,” said Adeel Yang, Co-Founder and CEO of Dryvebox. “The Cameron Champ Foundation has made great strides in bringing golf to underserved and underrepresented communities. Once equipped with Dryvebox’s mobile simulators, they will be primed to spread the game of golf in a whole different way. Our mission at Dryvebox is to grow the game by making golf more accessible and engaging. Through our partnership with the Cameron Champ Foundation, we’ve found a group of like-minded people who are driven to make a real difference in the world of golf. We can’t wait to get started.”

About Dryvebox
Dryvebox was founded in 2020 by Adeel Yang, Jake Hutt, Mike Leong and Matt Gipple. The first of its kind mobile golf simulator was developed to grow the game of golf in a meaningful way for new and experienced golfers. Based in San Francisco, the company will soon expand into three new markets following the close of their seed investment round. Learn more at dryvebox.com.
