Professional golfer Kevin Kring has recently been named a feedONE Ambassador for Convoy of Hope. The feedONE Initiative raises funds toward feeding nearly 150,000 children in 10 countries where Convoy of Hope provides nutritious food, clean and safe drinking water, and education.
“‘I’ve chosen to raise awareness for children faced with poverty through Convoy of Hope,” Kring says. “With feedONE, $10 feeds a child in need for an entire month. My goal is that with each drive — every shot of every round, we get one step closer to eradicating hunger from the lives of hungry children.”
Kring, a Springfield native, turned professional in 2012 upon his graduation from the University of Colorado. On his first day as a professional golfer, he shot a round of 63 and qualified for the Nationwide Tours United Leasing Championship in Evansville, Indiana. Less than two months later, his qualifying round of 65 earned an invite to play in the Web.com Tour, Price Cutter Charity Championship, on his hometown course at Highland Springs Country Club.
“We are honored to have Kevin’s support,” says Jeff Roman, vice president at Convoy of Hope leading the charge for feedONE. “We are excited to work together to feed hungry children around the world. We certainly wish him the best of success this season.”
