Advocates Fore You Golf Tournament & Collegiate Challenge

As you may know, the AAOA routinely sponsors two fundraisers at OMED, one being the Advocates Fore You Golf Tournament, and the other being the Still Fit for Life Fun Run. In 2017, however, we will consolidate our efforts behind the Fun Run at OMED and give the golf outing a rest this time. We are delighted to announce that this year’s Honorary Fit for Life Chair will be Peter Ajluni, DO.

As has always been the case, 100% of the profits from these fundraising events goes back to support the osteopathic community in the form of S.O.M.A Scholarships, presented at OMED, but also through grants for special projects across the country. This is a rich tradition that we plan to continue for many years to come.
