Wysocki Hosts Clinic To Help Recovering Addicts

Charity Collective Change arranged outreach program in Arizona



Ricky Wysocki joined up with charity Collective Change to introduce disc golf to those suffering from drug and alcohol addictions.

In January, Wysocki hosted a clinic and played a round of golf with nine patients from the Calvary Healing Center in Phoenix, Arizona. Afterward, he donated extra discs for the center to go with disc golf baskets purchased by Collective Change.

“I loved it and would love to continue working with them,” Wysocki said of his experience with Collective Change. “Hopefully this video will open doors for me to start using this model and doing more stuff throughout my tour as well.”

Collective Change is a community of people who donate $1 for a different charitable cause every month. Members voted on Drug and Alcohol charities in January, with Dr. William Nelson of National Addiction Services winning that month’s donations. Nelson plays regularly with Wysocki when the pro is in Arizona, and he connected Collective Change with Wysocki.

“It was actually Dr. Nelson’s idea to turn this donation into a day of disc golf,” said Evan Wolfson, Collective Change Co-founder. “It got us thinking about putting on a full-blown charity tournament with celebrities and the whole nine. We figure those work great for ball golf, why not for disc?! I’m thinking we might make that happen.”
