On Monday, September 25, Tria Health, a chronic condition and medication management company, and MedTrakRx, a pharmacy benefit manager (PBM) and division of EnvisionRxOptions, hosted the sixth annual Folds of Honor ProAm Golf Tournament at Milburn Country Club in Overland Park, Kan. The event raised a record $100,000 to fund educational scholarships for spouses and children of fallen heroes.
“For the past six years we have been actively involved in providing support for Folds of Honor through the ProAm Golf Tournament. We are proud to provide hope and healing to the families that have made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. We continue to appreciate the support we get from our partners and vendors in Kansas City and across the country”, said Larkin O’Keefe, President of Tria Health. He added, “This year we were able to exceed our goals thanks to everyone who participated, especially our Title Sponsors, Rite Aid and Mediware.” Since the beginning of this event, we have been able to raise over $400,000 for Folds of Honor.
Folds of Honor, established in 2007, is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing educational scholarships to families of America’s fallen and wounded soldiers in an effort to provide hope and healing. Of the 1-million-plus dependents adversely affected by deployments, nearly nine out of 10 do not qualify for federal scholarship assistance.
During the event, 155 golfers, including 31 PGA professionals from country clubs across the country, took to the course to raise scholarship funds for Folds of Honor. Previous scholarship recipients, Ginger Ravella and Kelli Campbell, also attended the event sharing their stories and gratitude.
“When I was left as a widow at the age of 36 with five very young children, I felt our entire future slipping down the drain,” said Ravella. “Major Troy ‘Trojan’ Gilbert was not just a heroic F-16 pilot in the Air Force, he was the love of my life and an amazing father, leader and friend. His loss left a deep cavern in our souls. Yet, by God’s grace, Troy’s legacy of service over self, and the great, generous support of Americans, we found the strength to go on.
Folds of Honor stepped into our lives at such an impactful moment. My kids began attending a Christian college prep school because of their Folds scholarships. My oldest son is now a sophomore in college and playing D1 sports with the help of Folds of Honor. We are grateful for the very tangible way Folds of Honor has honored Troy’s sacrifice by educating his legacy.”
Tria Health is honored to continually support Folds of Honor. If you want more information on how you can get involved in this event, please contact January Pointer at 913-601-5046 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
