The mission of CRMC’s Foundation is to care for everyone in the community from their first breath to their last regardless of their financial ability. Dollars donated to the Foundation touch thousands of patients and families each year. Two examples of CRMC’s support are the Courage Cabinet which provides financial assistance to area cancer patients and the Because of Brandon fund which provides scholarships for area youth with Type 1 Diabetes to attend a summer camp and helps others diagnosed with the disease with their medical travel expenses.
The CRMC Championship will take place from August 28 to September 3 at Cragun’s Legacy Courses in Brainerd. It is the only PGA Tour Canada event occurring in the United States and marks the second PGA-sanctioned event in the state of Minnesota. Raffle tickets will also be available at the event.
