Jersey Mike’s Subs will once again “drive” the message of hope to hundreds of children throughout the state when it partners with inspirational golf phenomenon Dennis Walters and The First Tee of Monmouth and Ocean Counties to serve nutritious subs and encourage kids to overcome obstacles and reach for their dreams .
Walters, who became a trick-shot golfer after an accident left him paralyzed from the waist down, will share his motivational story with more than 600 youths at the event.
“Our partnership with Dennis extends for over a decade and during that time we have been proud to showcase his inspiring show and life lesson to kids in cities throughout the country,” said Peter Cancro, Jersey Mike’s founder and CEO. “By partnering with Dennis and The First Tee we can ensure that children are exposed to a positive message of inspiration that can have lasting impact on their lives.”
During the tour, Walters shares his personal story and the challenges he’s had to overcome, inspiring the kids and adults alike with life lessons as he wows them with some of golf’s most amazing shots. He is joined by his popular canine assistant, Bucky. In 2008, Walters was presented the PGA Distinguished Service Award.
“If there is something you really want to do – no matter how impossible it may seem – with enough hard work and perseverance you can do it,” said Walters.
