The JJ Redick Foundation, founded in 2011, is a not-for-profit organization established to benefit underprivileged youth. Our mission is to inspire children to conceive and achieve goals through programs and services designed to enhance their lives. The JJ Redick Foundation objective is to assist in a child’s ability to hope and dream past their current realities, providing an opportunity for a brighter and more productive future.
JJ was inspired to develop The JJ Redick Foundation because of the passion he had as a child for sports and education. JJ believes every child should be given an opportunity to succeed. JJ and his wife, Chelsea, established The JJ Redick Foundation to ensure that children understand the possibilities and opportunities that exist through dedication, hard work, and faith.
Last year, our kick-off event, a celebrity golf tournament at Ballyhack Golf Club in Roanoke, VA, was a huge success. We raised over $110,000 dollars and had a wonderful time throughout the process. I am partnering again this year with CHIP of the Roanoke Valley and The Children’s Miracle Network of the Roanoke Valley, two organizations that provide assistance and hope to less fortunate youth.
I’d like to thank our 2nd year running presenting sponsor for the golf tournament, Bright Services. Thank you to Marvin Bright for his commitment to the youth of the Roanoke Valley! And a thank you to our sponsors Kroger, Atlantic Credit and Finance, and Anderson and Friedman for helping to make last year’s event memorable and contributing to another great event this year.
I sincerely hope that all the participants will be back this year and we can continue to help young people in my hometown of Roanoke, VA. I am looking forward to seeing you all there!
