The Good Health Classic Golf Tournament began three decades ago and has raised over $5M since 2005.
Each year 100% of the tournament proceeds are used to support mission-inspired needs of our community, particularly around providing heightened access to healthcare to the poor and vulnerable.
Over the last several years proceeds have been focused on the needs of cancer patients and providing access to cancer care services. Through the tournament support the Foundation has participated in the purchase of a new mobile mammography unit for breast screening which delivers potentially life-saving mammograms to those who might otherwise lack access to regular exams. Further, tournament support helps fund wellness services for any Ascension Saint Thomas patient receiving a cancer diagnosis. Nutrition counseling, physical ﬁtness classes, directed meditation and mental coping skills are all administered to those in need because of this event.
“Sponsoring the Good Health Classic each year is just one small way Turner Construction strives to give back to the community. We value the work of Ascension Saint Thomas as a faith-based health care provider and the way they support needy patients. We are proud to support the foundation and this tournament.” — Paul Lawson, Turner Construction
