Swing Into Action Will Be July 31- Aug. 6 At Golf Course at Glen Mills

HEADstrong Foundation, the Delaware County based nonprofit that provides services to people fighting cancer, is known for its ties to lacrosse. Before he received the cancer diagnosis that ended his life, HEADstrong founder Nick Colleluori was a lacrosse star at Ridley High School and Hofstra University. Now, HEADstrong is upping its golf game.
The nonprofit has partnered with Amateur Golf Society Tour to host Swing Into Action. Held at the Golf Course at Glen Mills July 31- Aug. 6, the week-long invitational will raise funds and awareness for HEADstrong. AGS will donate $15 of every membership fee to the nonprofit when the code HEADstrong is used during registration. Membership fees range from $65-$100 for the April – Oct. season. Golfers can also pledge parts of their performance to HEADstrong.
HEADstrong provides financial assistance, peer support, comfort kits, meals and more to cancer patients and their families. Nick’s House provides 2,555 complimentary nights annually for out-of-town cancer patients and their families traveling to the Philadelphia area.
“We are very excited for this opportunity to engage a new audience of supporters,” said HEADstrong President Cheryl Colleluori. “We are honored to be a charitable partner and proud to be involved with the AGS Tour.”
Launched in 2023, AGS hosts week-long tournaments at golf courses in PA, NJ and DE. Participants play on their own schedules and record their scores in AGS’s app. Swing Into Action will work the same way.
“At AGS, we believe in the transformative power of golf and its ability to bring people together for a greater purpose,” said Dan Hershberg, co-founder and general manager of AGS. “Our new partnership with the HEADstrong Foundation exemplifies our commitment to making a difference in the fight against cancer. We are excited to rally our members and supporters to join us in this meaningful cause.”
