Thanks To All Who Support the Cause and the Mission 

We’d like to take this opportunity to thank our sponsors, partners and supporters for the amazing support towards our mission. Without our partners, sponsors and supporters our mission to honor and remember those who perished on 9/11, our Military Men and Women who deployed October 7th, 2001, those lost at war, and those who lost their lives due to the invisible wounds of war, would not be possible.

Funds raised allow Stride & Ride to grow its vision and continue the mission, as well as provide financial support, services and connections to military and first responder non-profit organizations. To find out more information on how to become a Stride & Ride sponsor, contact strideandriderelay@gmail.com

 Golf Ball Divers: http://golfballdivers.com

Why a cooperative of golf ball divers?

GolfBallDivers.com is owned and run by the Golf Ball Divers Alliance LCA. We’re a group of independent divers who – believe it or not – actually love the hard, dirty and often dangerous work of retrieving the millions of golf balls lost each year in the lakes and ponds of America’s golf courses. And now we've formed America's first cooperative (or co-op) of golf ball divers.  

Cooperatives are a proven way to help independent businesses stay strong and independent. In fact, there are now somewhere around 30,000 cooperatives in the United States with over 350,000 members. They’re helping independent businesses in just about every industry you can think of – from cranberry farmers (Ocean Spray) and craft beer brewers (Independent Brewers Alliance) to hardware stores (Ace and TrueValue). That’s because co-ops work. Not just for their members, but for their customers too. 

How the co-op works for both of us

In a word our co-operative (like most co-ops) is about "fairness.” Fairness for our customers, because by selling direct to you we can help make the game you love easier and more affordable. And fairness for us. As owners of our own cooperative, collecting, processing and selling the balls we collect ourselves, we get fairer payment for the work we do, and more security for our families. So, it’s a win-win for everyone.

Our golf balls go even further than that


As something a little extra, every ball you buy from us helps enrich the lives of people with disabilities by offering them jobs, opportunity and independence. That’s because we’ve built our new state-of-the art golf ball processing facility at Lapeer Team Work’s GO Industries. GO has been offering all kinds of support and training to people with disabilities for over 50 years. GO is also pioneering a new vocational training model for people with disabilities.
