Challenge America's Past Events
2015 Challenge America Golf Classic
Challenge America held its fourth annual golf classic at The Foundry Club in Richmond, Virginia on September 21, 2015. This incredible event grew out of a birthday party for Lt. Col. Bobby Sanford, who waned to have a golf tournament to raise money for our nation's military. The tournament has grown each year and over $350,000 has been raised. A team of local business leaders have been instrumental in growing the event to where it is today.
Dallas, Texas, was the launch site of the national C.A.M.O. initiative. In addition to over 300,000 active duty military, Reserves and National Guard members, there are more than 1.6 million veterans residing in Texas, making it one of only three states with a veteran population greater than 1 million. The cliché of “everything is bigger in Texas” holds true in regards to the support Texans give military members and their families. In keeping with the Texas philosophy, the January 19, 2013, launch event of C.A.M.O. Dallas was held at iconic Cowboys Stadium and included 15-minute physicals by Dr. Mehmet Oz of The Dr. Oz Show,a symposium, Resource Fair, Family Fun Time and star-studded concert for military members and their families.
