Kevin Minnick, writing for the Cherry Hill [NJ] Courier-Post, profiles Brad Hennefer, the 21-year-old athlete who is the heart of the Brad Hennefer Golf for Life Foundation.
The foundation. which introduces the game of golf to people with Down syndrome, was created in 2006 by Brad and his brother Bobby, mother Nancy and father Bob (above). An excerpt:
… Never in their wildest dreams could they have imagined how far the foundation would come in such a short period of time.
What began as clinics has transcended into public speaking around the country, participation in national events, hob-nobbing with celebrities.
… “We never dreamed he would be doing what he’s doing,” Nancy said. “Families see hope when they see him.”
… In life, people come and go. Then there are those you never forget because they’ve made a difference. That’s Brad Hennefer.
