Through Aug. 9, Ladies Professional Golf Association pros will converge upon northwest Ohio to compete in the 2020 Marathon LPGA Classic presented by Dana at Highland Meadows Golf Club in Sylvania. Though this tournament will look different than any before, as there are no spectators allowed during the pandemic, you can still enjoy the tournament by tuning in to The Golf Channel. What’s not different this year, however, is the support the Marathon Classic brings to northwest Ohio charitable organizations.
The Marathon Classic will help support the needs of area children through basic living needs, inspiring them in their education and healthy living, advocating for children and supporting their families, providing them with mentors and direction, and enriching the lives of children with special needs by giving to the following organizations:
- Adopt America Network
- Aurora Project
- Big Brother Big Sister of West Central Ohio
- Boys and Girls Club of Toledo and First Tee of Lake Erie
- CASA/GAL of Hancock County
- Catholic Club
- Children’s Museum of Findlay
- College Mentors for Kids
- Connecting Kids to Meals
- Courageous Community Services
- Franciscan Earth Literacy Center
- Geary Family YMCA
- Girls on the Run of NW Ohio
- Hancock County Special Olympics
- Hancock Literacy
- Heartbeat of Toledo
- Junior Achievement of NW Ohio
- Muscular Dystrophy Association
- Sara’s Garden
- Sleep in Heavenly Peace
- Sylvania Community Action Team
- YMCA of Bucyrus-Tiffin
- YMCA of Greater Toledo
Since the Marathon Classic began in 1984, it has distributed over $11.5 million to children’s charities across northwest Ohio and southeast Michigan.
Though fans may not be able to watch pros tee off in person this year, you can still be part of the event and show your support either by tuning in to The Golf Channel or by donating to this year’s children’s charity selections through the Marathon Classic.
