FITLIGHT® Sponsoring Palm Tee Golf's 'Aim For Change' Golf Challenge to Raise Awareness and Support of Overtown Youth Center

FITLIGHT® Sponsoring Palm Tee Golf's 'Aim For Change' Golf Challenge to Raise Awareness and Support of Overtown Youth Center

Revolutionary Technology Company Supports Golf Fundraiser Helping Local Youth

PR Newswire

MIAMI, July 7, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- FITLIGHT®, a technology company who designs and creates innovative exercise and training environments with light sensors announced today they are sponsoring Palm Tee Golf's 'Aim for Change' Golf Fundraising challenge. The event, hosted by Palm Tee Golf, is scheduled to take place on July 24-26, 2020 at the Costa Del Sol Golf Club in Doral, FL.

The event will sponsor 10 youth golfers ages 13-18 and each will be placed on one of the 10 teams competing. Palm Tee Golf is an aquatic golf range featuring floating green targets that allow the golfers to test their accuracy from 20-120 yards. Teams will be competing over the course of 3 days with prizes for the top 3 teams and a percent of the proceeds from the event being donated to Overtown Youth Center. The Overtown Youth Center is a youth development program that provides comprehensive services to predominantly African American and Hispanic at-risk youth and their families, all of whom live in some of the most underserved neighborhoods in South Florida. The event is an opportunity to help shed light on the recent events surrounding racial injustice that have taken place and to help make a difference in the lives of those around us.

"As a black man in America, I have personally experienced racism and the injustices that continue to plague our country. At this moment it is my duty as a leader to inspire and influence the black youth so that they can rewrite our history and benefit from the positive attributes this country has to offer," said Julian Butler, Owner of Palm Tee Golf and U.S. Veteran. "One of the things that specifically helped me as a youth was being able to break the cultural barrier. We are a country built on a lot of things, some good, and some ugly – but one thing that makes this country great is our ability to unify and overcome. No judgment nor assumptions based on past experiences – lets come together, to celebrate our freedom to UNITE and play some golf!"

"We are so happy to be a part of this fantastic initiative," said Alana D'Andrade, Director of Business Development at FITLIGHT®. "I believe change begins in your own community and FITLIGHT® has made it a priority to be involved with local events, such as this, that provide opportunities for black youth, as well as support black-owned businesses, such as Palm Tee Golf. We hope this is one event of many to come in the future."
