Swing Fore Hope
Visionary Founder, Brett Gilliland and his wife, Julie, founded Swing Fore Hope after Julie’s mother, grandmother, and two aunts were all diagnosed with cancer within a seven-month period. Soon after, both Brett’s and Julie’s fathers were also diagnosed with cancer.
Swing Fore Hope raises money for cancer research and to help families through the financial hardship that comes with battling cancer. They help with mortgage payments, medical bills, transportation to and from treatments, medical equipment, Christmas gifts and other needs.
Each year, Swing Fore Hope has a golf tournament at Sunset Hills Country Club in Edwardsville, IL, which is the main fundraising event. They also have a horse racing event and a 5K and Fun Run. Since 2007, Swing Fore Hope has raised over $300,000 for cancer research for Siteman Cancer Center, and to directly help families.
