The Hughston Golf Tournament held at the end of the school year, at Maple Ridge Golf Course in Columbus. This fundraiser event is a big hit with business leaders and educators each year. All funds raised by the tournament go directly to support the Hughston Protect the Athletes campaign. The mission of the campaign is to raise funds to support the athletic sports coverage that Hughston provides across the Chattahoochee Valley to youth programs, such as sideline coverage at high school sporting events, support of preparticipation exams, and Saturday morning injury clinics. This program began back in 1998 with just 3 certified athletic trainers (ATCs). Today, it is one of the largest athletic training fellowship program in the Southeast with 14 ATCs. Besides providing coverage at sporting events, this fundraising project helps purchase much needed ImPACT concussion software for area high schools and other participating colleges.
