Emanuel McNeil founded the Moriah McNeil Celebrity Golf Classic in 2004, to honor the memory of his daughter Moriah. In addition to honoring Moriah, the golf tournament will raise money and bring awareness to ReeseStrong Foundation. Please join us at the Annual Moriah McNeil Celebrity Golf Tournament.
Remembering Moriah McNeil
Moriah McNeil was the daughter of former NFL player Emanuel McNeil, who formerly administered the Progressive Educational Program at Highland Springs High School. In May 2002, at the early age of seven, Moriah was diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer, she demonstrated a resilience that amazed her doctor and nurses. On April 20, 2004, Moriah surrendered her courageous battle with this deadly disease. To honor Moriah, her annual golf tournament serves as a fundraiser for children's charities and this year we have chosen ReeseStrong, a local chairty that helps families who have children with cancer. Previous years the beneficiary was SPARROW CLUBS USA, which supported Moriah and her family through her battle with cancer.
ReeseStrong was founded to honor the life and spirit of its namesake, Julia 'Reese' Klauer who was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor in January 2009. ReeseStrong Foundation, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit public charity.
Our mission is to help families stay strong in the battle against childhood cancer. We provide financial, emotional and social support for families affected by this disease. In doing all of these things, we also strive to raise awareness of childhood cancer by supporting research and displaying the gold ribbon (the symbol for childhood cancer awareness) as often as we can. http://www.reesestrong.org/
