Jeff’s 500 Miles

For Kid’s Wheelchairs

Jeff Kotansky, a caddie at Bayonne, NJ Golf Club, realized what we take for granted, the ability to walk, is not the case for millions around the world. He wants to make a difference.

For 40 days following Labor Day, Jeff will perform his duties and commit to walking 500 miles, carrying 40 lbs. of golf equipment, creating awareness for kids lacking mobility.

In partnership with American Wheelchair Mission, Jeff’s goal is 1,000 children like Azul receiving a new wheelchair.
