HOUSTON, Texas (PRWEB) January 25, 2021
InsurMark, a Simplicity Group company, is pleased to announce that InsurMark founder and President Steve Kerns will kick-off a special mission and fundraising effort to benefit the Folds of Honor in 2021. Folds of Honor is a charitable organization dedicated to honoring America’s fallen and disabled service members by providing educational scholarships to those service members’ spouses and children.
The military holds a special place in Kerns’ heart. Raised in Omaha, Nebraska, he served in the Marine Corps Reserve and graduated from its Officer Candidate School while attending the University of Nebraska. Kerns and his wife Becky founded InsurMark in 1983, a company known for its integrity, innovation, leadership and service.
The Folds of Honor has been InsurMark’s charity of choice since 2014, and Kerns has been actively involved with fundraising efforts on behalf of the charity since day one. Kerns’ new initiative involves a year-long series of golf marathons. He will dedicate one day each month to playing 100-holes of golf at a different golf course across the country, amounting to 1,200 holes played by the end of 2021.
Along with raising funds for the charity, Kerns also hopes the golf marathon will help raise awareness for Folds of Honor and the people it honors and serves. Said Kerns, “InsurMark continues to support Folds of Honor because the educational scholarships make a direct impact on the family members of patriots who served our country. When you donate to Folds of Honor, you invest in their future.”
People and organizations that want to support Kerns’ fundraising initiative are invited to pledge donations for every hole Kerns completes during the golf marathon or make a single donation in any amount they choose. Pledges and donations can be made at KernsGolfMarathon.com.
Kerns will also be active on social media throughout the year, posting updates about upcoming golf marathon locations, inspiring stories of scholarship recipients and status of his fundraising efforts. Additional information about the initiative and links to social media channels can be found at https://KernsGolfMarathon.com.
In addition to his special golf marathon mission, Kerns hopes friends and colleagues will be inspired to support Folds of Honor in other ways. “People can participate in InsurMark’s many Folds of Honor events throughout the year, sponsor a college scholarship within their own community and help promote the Folds of Honor mission. Whether one is compelled to donate time, money or help spread the word about our fundraising efforts, every little bit will make a difference,” Kerns said.
