SIA National Capital Region Security Forum Charity Golf Tournament
The Security Industry Association (SIA) National Capital Region Security Forum (NCRSF) – a community of leading D.C.-area security professionals representing industry and government – has revealed the details for its tenth annual charity golf tournament. Proceeds from the annual golf outing will benefit the work of the Kennedy Krieger Institute’s Center for Brain Injury Recovery to support traumatic brain injury research and care for children and adolescents and improve the lives of those affected.
The SIA NCRSF Charity Golf Tournament supports the work of the Kennedy Krieger Institute, an internationally recognized institution located in Baltimore, Maryland, and dedicated to improving the lives of children and young adults with pediatric developmental disabilities and disorders of the brain, spinal cord and musculoskeletal system. The tournament was established in 2014 to support longtime SIA NCRSF member David Sawczuk following his family’s life-changing rehabilitation experiences with the institute.
In 2007, Sawczuk’s son Benjamin – who was eight years old at the time – was struck by a car while riding his bicycle alongside a road. He suffered a traumatic brain injury and was in a coma for 23 days before undergoing months of extensive rehab therapy with the Kennedy Krieger Institute’s pediatric brain injury program and making a healthy recovery. After completing inpatient rehabilitation at Kennedy Krieger, Ben attended the institute’s Specialized Transition Program, a neurorehabilitation day hospital, for seven months. Ben went on to graduate from high school, then college—exceeding all expectations and prognoses. To date, the SIA NCRSF charity golf tournament has raised over $500,000 in donations toward the center’s brain injury research, patient transition efforts from hospital to home and urgently needed wheelchairs.
