Sedona Golf Pro Raises $6000 For Camp Soaring Eagle

Gary PearceGary Pearce, Head Golf Professional at the picturesque Sedona Golf Resort, completed the recent P.F. Chang’s Rock & Roll Marathon at the swift pace of three hours, twenty minutes and fifty five seconds. His finish earned him 18th place in his age division (50-54) and 382 overall amongst the 5110 runners in this annual Arizona marathon.

However, Gary’ biggest accomplishment that day was charitable in nature. Through pledges leading up to the marathon, he raised $6000 for Camp Soaring Eagle in Sedona. The amount raised will provide twelve scholarships to send children to the camp that provides children with serious and life threatening illnesses a special camp experience where they can forget about their illnesses and just be kids in a medically safe environment.

"We know you all have many choices when it comes to contributing your time, money and efforts to a number of worthwhile causes and we are grateful that you chose this effort to support the children of Camp Soaring Eagle that are faced with serious and life threatening illnesses,” stated Gary Pearce. “These children are very grateful for the opportunity to attend camp and for the chance to laugh and play and to just be child-like, our sincerest heartfelt thanks to all of you."

Through a professional relationship that had developed between Pearce and Max James, the founder of Camp Soaring Eagle, Gary was struck by the Camp’s vision and Mr. James and his CSE staff’s mission. Currently there are over 350,000 children in the southwest living with fatal or life threatening diseases. Camp Soaring Eagle serves children from Arizona, Nevada, New Mexico and Utah all completely free of charge to the campers and their families.
