Thursday, April 16, 2009
INDIANAPOLIS – Jack and Barbara Nicklaus will receive Pathfinder awards in June for their longtime contribution to youth sports.
The 69-year-old golfer and his wife head the Nicklaus Children’s Health Care Foundation, which has raised more than $10 million since it began in 2004. They also have supported junior golf programs across the country for many years.
The Pathfinder is presented each year in conjunction with the Youthlinks Indiana Charity Golf Tournament sponsored by Indiana Sports and Indiana Black Expo. Last year’s winner was Basketball Hall of Famer Oscar Robertson.
The Nicklauses will receive the award June 28 at the annual Pathfinder banquet at Conseco Fieldhouse.
