10th Annual Sarah Knight Memorial Golf Tournament

10th Annual Sarah Knight Memorial Golf Tournament
When: Friday, June 10, 2022
Where: Hunters Ridge Golf Course   Marion, Iowa

On September 26, 2011, one word – Myocarditis – changed their lives forever. At the time, they did not know the disease or how it steals the lives of children and young adults without symptoms or warning. Now the word strikes fear and sadness in their hearts.

Establishing the Sarah Knight Memorial Foundation in Sarah’s honor has helped her family heal and find a way to continue Sarah’s legacy. Each year they host a benefit golf tournament to raise funds to further Myocarditis research and fund a scholarship at

Sarah’s alma mater, Western Illinois University. In nine years have funded two $40,000 Myocarditis Foundation research grants and are well on our way to funding a third.

This year, Sarah’s kindergarten students from Hillcrest Elementary will be High School Seniors, and perhaps one of them will be directly impacted by “Miss Knight” again.

Dr. Leslie Cooper will be in attendance and speaking to the attendees. If you are in the area, or can be, think about joining the Knight Family at Hunters Ridge Golf Course in Marion, Iowa on June 10th!
