Golfers from near and far are registering for the 2017 Wayman Tisdale Foundation Golf Tournament. The golf outing has previously been held in Oklahoma City. Foundation CEO Regina Tisdale has decided to bring this year’s golf outing to Tisdale’s home city of Tulsa, and childhood backyard The Tulsa Country Club.
The Wayman L. Tisdale Foundation, Inc. (the “Tisdale Foundation”), honors the life and legacy of the professional basketball player and smooth jazz bass guitarist, Wayman Tisdale. Together with a host of collaborators, the Tisdale Foundation identifies eligible individuals with unmet prosthetic needs and pays for cutting-edge prosthetic care. Operating out of the Wayman L. Tisdale Specialty Clinic in Wayman Tisdale’s hometown, Tulsa, Oklahoma, the Tisdale Foundation changes lives throughout the United States.
The Tisdale Foundation remains committed to its core mission of providing top-flight prostheses and device maintenance to those in need but recently expanded its horizons. The newly-launched “Wayman’s Way” initiative directs attention and resources to the promotion of positive lifestyles and preventative health care, with an emphasis on health & wellness, childhood health education, and nutrition awareness.
The Tisdale Foundation understands that segments of the population, particularly, African-Americans, suffer from disproportionate rates of diabetes, heart disease, and other ailments; that lack of information about and access to healthy food and health care services contribute to these ills.
The Tisdale Foundation encourages and supports those who seek to live life to its fullest: disease-free, education-rich, and wellness-infused. It’s about the quality of life. That means having fun, flashing a smile, and doing things “Wayman’s Way.”
