As well as being a great golfer, Rory McIlroy has given up his time and money to create his own charity that supports children’s charities around the world.
It’s good to know that every time Rory wins a big paycheck some of that money is helping out underprivileged charities around the world.
“When I was younger my parents sacrificed everything to allow me to play the game I love, Having that support from my family gave me the opportunity to chase my dreams. But I know that every child is not so fortunate. My aim is that The Rory Foundation will support children’s charities big and small, around the world, that try to give kids that helping hand.”
The foundation which was established in 2013 has donated to brilliant charities such as Mencap NI, The Rashid Centre for the disabled and opened a Cancer Fund for Children’s Therapeutic Short Break Centre in Newcastle Northern Island.
Amazing to see such a high profile sportsman giving back to the world in a brilliant way. Keep it up Rory!
