A Lifelong Commitment to Children’s Hospitals

Barbara and Jack Nicklaus have established a lifelong commitment to saving the lives of children by supporting children’s hospitals. Their personal efforts have made enormous impact on hospitals in Central Ohio and South Florida. Both Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus, Ohio and Nicklaus Children’s in Miami, Florida are forever improved as a result of their efforts.

Teeing the Vision Forward

To build on this vision, Barbara and Jack are asking the entire golf world to step forward and help save lives by raising funds to help children’s hospitals across North America. Together the Nicklaus Foundation and CMN Hospitals have created a unique cause-marketing platform designed specifically for the golf industry.

Why Children's Miracle Network Hospitals?

Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals provides the perfect platform to give back to children’s hospitals. Its network of 170 children’s hospitals across North America allows the golf community to give back to the communities in which they play and support. CMN Hospitals was built on a premise of keeping funds in local communities and allowing hospitals to use the funds where they are needed most. To learn more about CMN Hospitals, click here.
