TKD Foundation was set up to honor a friend who was lost to suicide and raise awareness and provide support to those who suffer or have lost someone to suicide.
This golf tournament is the primary fundraiser for the Foundation and is a celebration of life. The mission of the TKD Memorial Foundation is to celebrate life and bring light to suicide awareness and prevention. The population we serve is those suffering from thoughts of suicide and those who are left behind when a person takes their life. We focus our efforts of raising awareness and providing support in Chester, and Delaware counties.
We are a grass roots foundation. Our primary source of funding is a golf outing and Family Fun Picnic. We provide scholarships and raise awareness by bringing light to a topic that is under discussed and often kept in the shadows. Suicide is a very real and growing epidemic in our country. It is the 10th leading cause of death in the United States, each year more than 44,000 Americans die by suicide. With men dying 3.5 times more than women.
