Our Mission: [Close]
FORE Cancer Research was formed as a grass roots vehicle to help raise funds and awareness for cancer research. Our goal is to continue to raise millions of dollars through the help of the FORE Cancer Research Charity Pro-Am Golf Event, the Give 18 FORE Cancer Research campaign, and individual donations. Together we CAN make a difference and help put an end, once and for all, to this terrible disease.

So why

FORE Cancer Research has teamed up with the Stefanie Spielman Fund, The James Cancer Hospital, St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital, and many other organizations that are dedicated to finding a cure so that people you know, friends and family, may some day be saved from this terrible disease.

We have already helped fund several cancer research projects and we are dedicated to fund many more. With your dedication and help, it's only a matter of time before a cure for cancer is discovered through one of these projects.

Join us in our fight against cancer. Kirk Herbstreit, Chris Spielman, and Rubbermaid Commercial Products has - why not you. Every dollar we raise is donated to special Cancer Research Projects at The Ohio State University.

We have also started a new fundraising campaign called "Give 18 FORE Cancer Research". If every golfer gives $18.00 per year to fund cancer research we can have a significant impact on a disease that affects all of us. Please consider a yearly donation of $18.00 and tell your friends, family and fellow golf enthusiasts to join us in our fight to beat cancer once and for all. Your donations will go directly to fund cancer research projects by the brightest Doctors, Scientists and Researchers at the nation’s leading cancer research facilities throughout the United States.

If you are interested in cancer research or projects that are focused completely on finding a cure, take a look at our Cancer Facts & Links page. We share with you other great cancer-related organizations and some interesting facts about cancer.

Also, take a look at our Cancer Research Events page. There are many great organizations who work hard to raise money and awareness for cancer research.
