Bear Creek United Methodist Church
Several years have passed since the inception of the UMM golf tournament benefiting wounded heroes, but the need to help our injured brave soldiers coming back from Iraq and Afghanistan is now more critical than ever. Over the years, Bear Creek UMC has touched the lives of many of these fine men and women through the United Methodist Men’s outreach to the Impact Player Partners.
Each spring the United Methodist Men at Bear Creek UMC organize and facilitate an Annual Charity Golf Tournament. This tournament has benefited various missions and ministries within BCUMC. Since 2005 they have supported Impact Player Partners and their mission of improving the quality of life of our American heroes wounded in the war on terror.

Imagine waking up everyday without one or more of your limbs, with severe burns or even being paralyzed. For hundreds of War on Terror wounded veterans these new physical realities will be with them for the rest of their lives.
After the loss of a limb or severe injury the most recent memories for our heroes are that of pain, trauma and loss. Impact Player Partners provides severely wounded American heroes with new memories of warmth, love and new experiences of appreciation and respect from their sports heroes, favorite entertainers and stadiums/arenas filled with appreciative and cheering Americans.
Impact Player Partners arranges for America’s wounded heroes to meet with their favorite sports and entertainment personalities. We also work with the ownership and management of sports franchises to have these heroes honored before, during or after sporting and entertainment events. Moreover, once a year Impact Player Partners produces an Impact A Hero Weekend Extravaganza, which brings together injured American heroes, their families and leaders from business, sports and the entertainment community.
