Sole Reason Sneakers and Smiles Golf Tournament benefits local kids in need

Sole Reason’s 4th Annual Sneakers and Smiles Golf Tournament will be held Saturday, June 25th, 2022. This event benefits local kids in need. It is a 4-person scramble tournament, and it will again be held at the beautiful Cypress Ridge Golf Course, 2533 SW Urish Rd., in Topeka, Ks. This is the main fundraiser for the organization.

Jerry Hudgins started Sole Reason in Topeka in response to Pope Francis’s call for “The Year of Mercy.” It is a non-profit 501c3 company that specializes in the collection and distribution of new sneakers. The sneakers are given to local children in need in the local community.

The organization’s mission is to use the local communities’ love, compassion and generosity to provide new sneakers to school-age children in need, throughout the year. They feel that every child deserves to feel important, and this is their way of helping them experience that feeling.
