Participate in The Longevity Project

The Longevity Project is an annual campaign to help educate readers about what it takes to live a long, fulfilling life in our valley. This year Kevin shares his story of hope and celebration of life with his presentation Cracked, Not Broken as we explore the critical and relevant topic of mental health.

After the 7- to 9-year-olds are finished, the golfers age 6 and younger will tee off and play three holes.

Pro shop employee Amber Nicholson, herself a veteran of the Junior Classic, said the tournament has one goal.

“We want kids just to get out and get more exposure to the game,” she said.
