Where Every Family Matters

Miriam’s Promise Golf & Walk Challenge is Sept. 23

Celebrating 37 years of adoption and family support.

Miriam’s Promise will host the Mary Cooper Memorial Golf and Walk Challenge to support their vital work in the Middle Tennessee region on September 23, 2022 at Old Fort Golf Club and Greenway in Murfreesboro.

Founded in 1985, Miriam’s Promise offers hope and healing to thousands of Middle Tennessee expectant parents, birth parents, children and adoptive families coping with issues of grief, loss and transition. In light of the recent SCOTUS decision overturning Roe v Wade, the Miriam’s Promise pregnancy counseling program, which is offered free of charge to clients, is more vital than ever. This fundraising event will help secure the funds needed to ensure the success of the program.

“We are a social impact organization that offers counseling for pregnant people in crisis and ongoing services for families seeking or affected by adoption — all free from judgement and politics,” said Dietz Osborne, CEO of Miriam’s Promise. “The Cooper Golf and Walk Challenge is an opportunity for others in Middle Tennessee to show solidarity and give moral and financial support to the individuals and families we serve.”

More than 100 golfers, walkers, and volunteers will come together to raise friends, funds and awareness for Miriam’s Promise. This golf and walk challenge looks a little different from other events. Each golfer and walker will gain financial sponsorships from friends and colleagues while sharing the Miriam’s Promise story and the impact the agency has had over the last 37 years.

Walker registration begins at 9 a.m. Walk begins at 10 a.m. Lunch for all is at 11:30 a.m. Golfer registration is at 12 p.m. Golf scramble begins at 1 p.m.
