Kevin Vedder

My name is Kevin Vedder, and I'm from Westfield, NJ. I'm an avid golfer, though the bulk of my golf for the year now occurs during an annual trip with college buddies. I'm hopeful memories of the nine years I spent in my youth as a caddie will return to spur me on to walk 100 holes. I've been married to my wonderful wife, Suzanne, for 15 years, and am the proud father of a daughter and twin sons. I'm an active dad, and a board member of a trust that provides a scholarship to a Northwestern University journalism student. I support Els for Autism, and am doing the 100 Hole Hike for my four-year-old son, Seamus, who has autism. While autism can be very difficult to deal with at times, Suzanne and I are getting better at addressing the daily challenges it brings our little guy.

Els for Autism

The Els for Autism Foundation was established in 2009 by Ernie and Liezl Els to focus on the issue of autism. For the last three years the world class pro golfer and his wife have devoted their efforts to a catalytic philanthropic project - The Els Center of Excellence. The Foundation has launched a capital campaign to raise $30 million to finance the facility; the Els' have committed $6 million of their own money.

108 in the Books

July 1st was certainly a day that I’ll never forget. I managed to play 108 holes of golf and raise over $11,000 for Els for Autism.

Not far now...

With just over two weeks to go until my initial Hundred Hole Hike, the intrigue is setting in. Will I be able to make it? What will the weather bring?

Two Month Warning...

Two months to go until the Hike.
