N.I.C.K.’S Golf

Through a partnership with The First Tee of Broward, the Chiera Family Foundation has started an additional program called N.I.C.K.’S Golf. N.I.C.K.’S Golf allows children that are currently undergoing cancer treatments at Joe Di Maggio’s Children’s Hospital to enroll for 9 weeks of golf lessons at no cost to the child. Through the First Tee, these children not only get a needed break from their chemotherapy, but they also learn life lessons about Honesty, Integrity, Sportsmanship, Respect, Confidence, Responsibility, Perseverance, Courtesy and Judgment. Nine healthy habits are also taught during the nine-week session which helps teach them about exercise and nutrition. This wonderful program has also been extended to the siblings of these young cancer patients as they are often left out of activities as the family focuses on the child fighting the disease. This new program allows our foundation to reach out and touch kids battling cancer at other times throughout the year, not just through N.I.C.K.’S Camp.
