Fox News was at the WSCGA Junior Girls State Amateur Championship at Moss Creek Golf Club this weekend filming a story on Kayleigh "Buggy" Reinke. Buggy got her nickname from her dad who used to call her "Kayleigh bug" from the time she was born and the "Bug" stuck. She lost her dad in Iraq in 2006. Buggy had been playing golf for less than a year when she found out that her father had enjoyed playing golf. Once she learned that, golf really became her connection with him and her way to honor and remember him. Along her golf journey, the Reinke family found a few organizations that help families of fallen soldiers. One of those organizations is
Angels of America's Fallen
. They are a non profit that is entirely dedicated to the children of fallen soldiers and first responders. They focus on the kids before they get to college and their interests; swimming, golf, painting, etc. and will pay up to $1000 per calendar year for the child to pursue those interests.
"We have been blessed along the way to have found a few organizations that have become like family to us. I am a big believer in the concept, "It takes a village". I would not have been able to get through everything we have been through on my own and Buggy would not have be at the level she is today without a lot of people helping us along the way. They are an amazing organization who have supported Buggy and love her. Just like WSCGA, SCJGA, and SMGA, they are part of our village." Carole Reinke
Fox News will run the story on July 4th through out the day, if you want to get a head start and learn a little more about Buggy and Angel's of America's Fallen click the link below.
