In 2005, Notah Begay III, 4-time PGA TOUR winner and the only full-blooded Native American on the PGA TOUR, established the Notah Begay III Foundation (NB3). The Foundation addresses the profound health and wellness issues impacting Native American youth and empowers youth to realize their potential as leaders.
The mission of the NB3 Foundation is to reduce the incidence of obesity and type 2 diabetes and advance the lives of Native American youth. To this end, the Foundation supports the development of evidence-based sports and wellness programming primarily in the forms of soccer and golf, which serve as vehicles to improve the health of Native American youth as well as foster leadership and community development.
