PAR-TEE for Brooks Rehabilitation

Brooks Rehabilitation had the pleasure of hosting The DISCO PAR-TEE held at Topgolf Jacksonville in May of 2022. More than 200 supporters Par-Tee’d with us for an evening of fun, food and festivities. We boogied the night away and raised over $200,000 to directly support the program and participants of Adaptive Sports and Recreation and Pediatric Recreation. It is the invaluable support of our community sponsors that is critical to our ability to provide life altering programs and services at little or no cost to the participants. Event Photo Album
