“I am very excited to be part of a world class event
like the Barrett Amateur and most importantly about leaving
money in Atlantic Canada to help children in need.”
The Mike Weir Foundation is dedicated to
advancing the physical, emotional and educational welfare
of children. Since inception the foundation has raised over
$5 million for children’s wellness with over $3 million
of support being provided for children’s health care
and related causes.
In 2007, the Foundation created The Mike
Weir Miracle Golf Drive for Kids, one of the largest golf
fundraisers in Canada, to help generate funds for The Children’s
Miracle Network and its 14 children’s hospital members
in Canada. These hospitals provide critical care, research
and education and treat over 2.6 million children each year.
