The 2018 Special Kids Golf Classic was held on May 3rd and 4th at Indian Hills Golf Course in Murfreesboro. Special Kids is a Christian therapy and nursing center for children with special needs. The organization helps children learn to walk, speak, and write for the first time, every day.

Special Kids offers speech, physical, occupational, and feeding therapies as well nursing care and a summer day camp. They serve children birth to 21 years with all types of special needs from developmental delays to children who are medically fragile. This fantastic annual event raises thousands of dollars each year to help Special Kids continue to offer these services.
