The Jim & Tabitha Furyk Foundation in partnership with TIAA Bank, the PGA TOUR Wives Association and THE PLAYERS created yet another “These Kids Can Play” to celebrate the Community PedsCare families and all of the challenges they face on a daily basis. The 2020 These Kids Can Play event featured some our favorite collaborators including: The Jacksonville Zoo, Jaxson de Ville, Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp, Books-A-Go-Go, Jacksonville Icemen and MOCA Jacksonville.
These Kids Can Play was created to give the children from Community PedsCare and Wolfson Children’s Hospital a chance to enjoy a day at THE PLAYERS, complete with activities specifically tailored to their health needs. The families visit individual stations with interactive art, zoo animals, book selections, games and more. Each child receives a special gift bag and photo opportunities with the PGA TOUR players. These children with life-limiting/life-threatening conditions along with their families come to enjoy a VIP experience, which can include meeting animals from the Jacksonville Zoo, face-painting, photo booth fun, competing on the 17th Challenge and best of all, hanging out with PGA TOUR players and their wives. This year we will be donating over $60,000 to Community PedsCare to support the work & programs that they offer our community.
