Austin, Texas (PRWEB) May 08, 2013
Austin Oral Surgery sponsored the Fourth Annual Ignite a Dream Golf Classic Tournament last month.
The tournament was a fundraiser for Ignite a Dream, a nonprofit that works with the at-risk youth community of Austin to train students to become lifelong leaders through structured sports and other athletic programs. The organization helps schools start tennis and soccer programs when they lack the financial resources to do so on their own.
According to Ignite a Dream, higher levels of fitness are associated with better academic performance and school attendance and lower levels of violence, truancy and drug and alcohol use. To enforce these values, Ignite a Dream requires students in the program to maintain a B average in all of their classes and places an emphasis on attendance.
“Ignite a Dream works in parts of Austin that need their services the most,” said Dr. Russell D. Cunningham, Austin Oral Surgery’s Lakeway dental implants surgeon. “We’re proud to help this great organization fight the cycle of poverty that Austin’s at-risk communities suffer from. By providing athletic activities to students in our area, Ignite a Dream is growing the next generation of leaders, and we’re excited to help with that.”
