At an exclusive event in New York City this evening, Graeme McDowell will officially launch ‘The G-Mac Foundation‘.

The G-Mac Foundation‘s mission is to support children’s medical research in Northern Ireland, the Republic of Ireland and the United States. Working in conjunction with the leaders in children’s medical research and the main children’s hospitals in Dublin and Belfast, the Foundation will raise funds for much needed research in the area of children’s medicine.

“Charity is something I’ve always wanted to be involved in,” said Golf Monthly’s playing editor. “I’ve often had the chance to represent my chosen charities in some of the fun events we play during the year – such as the Tavistock Cup in Florida for example.

“I’m delighted to now have my own G-Mac Foundation to channel any funds I raise from events like this, and from other events such as the launch in Manhattan, to support my charities of choice.

In addition the Foundation will endeavour to bring a group of children from both the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland to Florida for the holiday of a lifetime. G-Mac has also been a long term supporter of Multiple Sclerosis charities, a cause that will remain a priority in his charitable work.

McDowell added: “People are now able to make donations via the charity section on my website GraemeMcDowell.com and generally I am going to work hard to continue channelling money into the Foundation.”
