EUGENE, Ore. --  Golfers are gearing up for the ultimate marathon -- 100 holes in one day.

The 8th Annual Feynman Charity Golf Marathon will be held Friday, Sept. 21, at Emerald Valley Golf and Resort in Creswell.  Twenty-eight participants will tee off, but there's a catch. Participants are challenged to raise a minimum of $1,000 for Kids' FIRST as well as golf 100 holes in 1 day. All money raised will benefit Kids' FIRST, Lane County's Child Abuse Intervention Center.  

Kids' FIRST is an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and provides intervention and advocacy for children that have been victims of, or witnesses to, crime. Services include forensic interviews, medical exams and victim advocacy for children that have allegedly experienced or witnessed abuse. Last year the Center served over 800 children in Lane County.

"Feynman Group has a strong commitment to the health of our local community and, especially, children in our community. The inaugural Feynman Charity Golf Marathon was held in 2011 as a way to give back to community and to support the extraordinary work that nonprofit children's advocacy organizations like Kids' FIRST Center does," said Scotty McConnell, CEO of Feynman Group.

Jaclyn Umenhofer, Development Director at Kids' FIRST, and golfer Jason Kunz from Feynman Group joined Sean Cuellar on KEZI 9 News to promote the upcoming marathon. Kunz has raised close to $5,000, but he said other golfers need sponsors.

Community members are invited to pick their favorite golfers and donate directly to his or her fundraising page in support of Kids' FIRST. To learn more, click here.
