We Care charity reached a new fundraising record this year, bringing in a total of $28,316 for Easter Seals, which helps send kids with disabilities to camp.

It costs $250 per day to send a child with disabilities to camp. 

Since the We Care charity golf challenge started in 2014, the organization has raised a total of $117,600 for the cause through annual golf tournaments at Cardinal Golf Course in Newmarket. 

Launching a charity golf challenge to raise funds for We Care is something King resident Brent Morning is passionate about after his own personal experience with the camp. 

Morning has cerebral palsy and spent 13 days at an Easter Seals camp back in the 1970s, which he said was a great experience.

"We are thrilled that a new record was set," said Morning. "I am grateful that close to 200 friends family, sponsors, golfers donors and volunteers contributed this year helping us reach a new record for this event."

"Brent Morning's ability to unite the community to raise funds for kids with disABILITIES is remarkable and shows in the results," said We Care's executive director Tiana Rodrigue. "This year's success represents another record year, funding 113 days at camp. We want to thank everyone in the community and afar who supported Brent's efforts, allowing kids to experience life-changing accessible camp sessions."

The plan for the next fundraiser will be announced in the early part of 2023. For more information email brent@charitygolfchallenge.ca
