“The FORE!

Their support has made it possible for the FORE! Miler to raise important funds for Nationwide Children’s Hospital, as well as providing a platform for us to highlight the alliance between the Hospital and Nicklaus Children’s Health Care Foundation. This year, we are also excited to welcome Eat. Learn. Play. Foundation as a new charitable beneficiary of the FORE! Miler.”
The Memorial Tournament, scheduled for May 30 – June 5, will once again collaborate with M3S Sports to operate the FORE! Miler. The Memorial and M3S will work closely with City of Dublin officials to create a first-class race experience for participants and Dublin residents alike.
