The winners of the 2017 David Hearn Foundation Kia Grant have been announced.
Kia Canada, along with PGA TOUR golfer and Kia ambassador David Hearn have announced the two winners of the 2017 The David Hearn Foundation Kia Grant, as Everett Craven (13 years old) from Woodstock, ON and Johnathon Coffey (8 years old) from Shallow Lake, ON.
The Grant encourages and enables junior golfers across Canada to give back to their communities, by recognizing their local Alzheimer Society; each recipient will be awarded with $4,500 to direct to their local chapter to assist with the implementation of programs and services.
“Golf is more than a sport,” said Hearn. “It is a platform to develop important life skills and friendships, and provides an opportunity give back to the community. I am excited to meet Everett and Johnathon later this month, two young golfers, who i believe have the ability to drive change in their communities and with others.”
Hearn is a spokesperson for the Alzheimer Society of Canada.
“A big congratulations to Everett and Johnathon from the entire Kia family,” said Ted Lancaster, VP & COO, Kia Canada Inc. “These two young men have demonstrated that sports can provide the next generation with a strong sense of community – as well as a fun activity to enjoy with friends and family. We’re proud to partner with David in his support of local charities and communities as well as the future of Canadian golf.”
