The Grand Strand Miracle League teamed up with professional athletes from the National Football League and Major League Baseball to kick off the 2 Live Beyond Golf Tournament weekend.
A handful of athletes, from former Coastal Carolina and current Cleveland Browns QB Tyler Thigpen, to MLB Hall of Famer Eddie Murray, helped lend a hand at the Miracle League's celebrity softball event. "To be able to give back to them, and you know, put a smile on their face, give them a high five, sign their shirt, anything I could do, I was excited to do that," Thigpen said.
Former MLB Outfielder and Florence native Reggie Sanders, and former NFL Wide receiver Andre Davis founded the 2 Live Beyond Tournament to raise money for the Reggie Sanders Foundation Dream Within You Campaign and the Africa New Life Ministries.
More than $100,000 was raised for the charities during the
tournament on Saturday at the Grand
Dunes Resort in Myrtle Beach.
