FORT MYERS, Fla. — Golfers teed off Sunday morning at the Westminster Golf Club for the seventh annual Help FORE Hannah Charity Golf Tournament.

Nine years ago, then 6-year-old Hannah Grant was in a car crash that left her disabled.

According to Hannah’s father, Scott Grant, the driver was on her cell phone and ran a red light. Now, Hannah can no longer walk or speak and has to take medications every seven hours.

Hannah’s family started this tournament to help raise money for Hannah’s medical bills.

However, Hannah’s family hopes the tournament will raise more than just money.

“This raises not only awareness for us and tells people don’t do this because this could happen to you,” Grant said. “But it also helps provide stuff that we need for Hannah.”

Hannah and her family continue to take part in the “Stay Alive …. Just Drive!,” a nationally recognized traffic crash prevention, awareness and education program aimed at curbing distracted driving and promoting safe driving.
