Dear Friends,

The 13​th​ annual Tearing Up the Turf Golf Tournament will be held on Sunday, September 20, 2015 at the Fairways of Halfmoon Golf Course in Mechanicville, NY.

2014 marked our twelfth annual Tearing Up the Turf golf outing. Through your generosity, the Tearing Up the Turf with Timothy and his Friends Golf Tournament raised an amazing $90,000! These funds will help us support inclusive education and social opportunities for students with Down syndrome.

As always, part of the tournament proceeds will continue to fund the Down Syndrome Aim High Resource Center Reading Tutorial program. This program provides one on one expert reading instruction by certified reading specialists to students with Down syndrome. We look forward to increasing the amount of students able to receive this highly effective reading instruction.

We are also continuing our partnership with the Shenendehowa Central School District by supporting the professional development of administrators and teaching staff in the areas of inclusion and differentiation.

This year we will be expanding our efforts in the area of social inclusion. Tearing Up the Turf is currently creating partnerships that will enable us to offer social opportunities for students with Down syndrome and their friends. One social opportunity we are planning is to create an integrated summer camp program,
which provides a fully integrated environment where campers and students of all abilities learn and play together. We will have new and exciting updates to share in September.

We wouldn’t be able to do any of this good work without you and we thank you for your continued support of our mission to inspire inclusion.

Tearing Up the Turf is currently seeking sponsors who can join us and contribute to the continued success of the tournament. On the enclosed flyer, you will find our golf and sponsorship form which offers a variety of sponsorship options.
