When God created Chris, he nailed it! Pure perfection!
The Christopher Corgan Memorial Foundation was established in January 1997 after the sudden passing of Christopher on October 5, 1996 at the young age of 23. Christopher had an undetected heart condition, an enlarged heart, specifically his left ventricle, which is known as left ventricular hypertrophy. He had an arrhythmia while exercising, a very fast, irregular heartbeat and died of cardiac arrest. As a way of keeping his memory alive, the Corgan family started this charity organization to support people in need. In Chris’ name scholarships are awarded to students looking to pursue a higher education while attending college, the American International College Physical Therapy program, and individuals that are in need of special medical attention. To date the Chris Corgan Memorial Foundation has been solely funded by proceeds generated from the Annual Chris Corgan Memorial Golf Tournament. We are proud to say this unique golf event, which has been ongoing for the past 13 years, has enabled us to award over $100,000 in scholarships and donations to people in need.
