Jeff Kotansky, a caddie at Bayonne, NJ Golf Club, realizes what we take for granted, the ability to walk,  is denied by millions around the world.  He wants to make a difference.

Following Labor Day,  Jeff is committed to caddy for 500 miles, carrying up to 40 lbs. of golf equipment, to create awareness for kids who lack mobility.

In partnership with the Knights of Columbus and the American Wheelchair Mission a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization with tax ID 26-4571639, Jeff's goal is to raise $150,000 to purchase 1000 wheelchairs for children like Azul.

Jeff's Daily Blog

10/17 (Day 42) This is my final post, so I Just want to thank everyone for their donations and support.  The comments I've received throughout this experience have been incredible.  It's awesome th see everyone come together for a great cause.  It's been a truly remarkable experience, and if this ends up being my last season at Bayonne Golf Club I can't think of a better way to go out.  For those of you that don't know, I've been working seasonally for the last 15 years I've been out of school.  As amazing as my jobs have been, I'm really looking forward to returning to Florida and staying in one place year around.  Thanks again everyone, you're all great!
