As we finish up the 3rd Annual Wes Leonard Heart Team golf outing, we wanted to
take a minute to reflect on what an amazing day it was and extend our gratitude
to everyone involved. Each year it becomes more difficult to put into the words
the appreciation we have for our golfers, sponsors, and volunteers. Our “Thank
You” will never be loud enough or said enough. This year’s golf outing turned
out to be another outstanding event. A big thank you to our gold sponsor,
NorthStar AED, to our silver sponsors Basketball Coaches Association of Michigan
and World Class Prototypes. No matter the size of the contribution, we thank
everyone who sponsored or came out to the event. It gets repeated every year
that we, the Wes Leonard Heart Team, cannot do this alone. Hence, the reason we
call ourselves a “TEAM”. It takes help from everybody associated with us. This
year was no different. As we finished up the handing out the team and individual
awards, we received a surprise from Charlie Sander’s foundation, “Have a Heart
Save a Life”, as they made a donation of $3,000. Moments later, the Gun Lake
Tribe announced that they wanted to match that previous donation.We found
ourselves speechless for seconds after announcing the Gun Lake Tribe’s
intentions. The day couldn’t have ended any better. One more time we would like
to thank: all our sponsors, the volunteers that helped with event itself,
members of the WLHT that helped coordinate the day, the Diamond Springs golf
staff that went above and beyond, and you, our TEAMMATES, that help make this
golf outing what it is, a life-saving event! Wesley would have been very proud
of the success of the day and the commitment we all have to “Just One More

This site and our mission are dedicated to Wes (1994-2011)
Wes had a love for life and for the “game” that was infectious. His enthusiasm was inspiring. He was truly happy playing any sport he could. He was often heard asking his mom for a little more time to play “Just One More Game”.
Wes was taken from us far too early. While we don’t believe that this was his destiny, we will make sure his legacy will be carried on
for many years to come. We are going to work with the same enthusiasm, drive and love he had every day to honor him and other children lost to SCA providing others a chance at “Just One More Game”.
