MIGA is a nonprofit organization that Casey Martin, Mike Adams and Derek Gemmet founded in 2006. The mission of the organization is to achieve measures of physical rehabilitation and positive mental health for children and young adults with special needs. The program includes private and group lessons, clinics and social events through the year which are free of charge.
Any child or young adult with a disability is welcomed into our program which takes place at Lake Oswego Public Golf Course, said Adams, a Professional Golfers Association of America instructor. We are the only organization, nonprofit or other, who exclusively provides these opportunities for youth with disabilities in Oregon.
Martin, a professional golfer, is currently the mens head golf coach at the University of Oregon, and Gemmet is the first golfer with cerebral palsy to become a professional golfer.
