Paying it Forward
Our family is proud to carry on Steve's legacy. He was an incredible person - a son, a brother, an uncle, a husband, a father, an athlete, a physician & a loyal friend. Our inaugural golf outing took place in June 2016, and it has continued to be a success each year due to generous support from participants, donors & sponsors.
Thank you to everyone who has already reached out and offered their help with our organization. We are so so very grateful. All monies raised to date have gone toward (1) student-athlete education at Michigan State University in the form of a Scholarship Endowment, (2) the Munn Arena Renovation Project (the new Team Physician office will be dedicated in Steve's honor), and (3) advancing esophageal cancer research via the Esophageal Cancer Awareness Network (ECAN).
As of 2021, The Stephen Swistak, M.D. Memorial Fund has joined forces with The Rainbow Connection to begin the process of granting life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. Wishes can change the odds for children fighting their illness. A wish come true assists children in feeling stronger, more energetic, more willing and able to battle their critical illnesses. It is our hope that a child’s wish may work in concert with their treatment and contribute to a positive outcome. Two children have already been selected by the Stephen Swistak Memorial Fund to be granted their Wishes in 2021 - trips to Walt Disney World!
If anyone knows of, or is associated with, a business that would like to help sponsor the 6th Annual Golf Classic in 2021, we would love to talk with them. We will also be looking for ways to promote the event & get the word out. Remember, all donations are tax-deductible.
Thank you as always for the support!
