About this tournament

My name is Mike Correnti. My wife Jessica and I lost our daughter Maggie Sophia Correnti on December 8th 2016. We have since raised enough money to build Maggie's Run at Druid Hill Park, a special layout on the Legacy Course at Druid Hill. We purchased 18 brand new baskets, 36 tee signs for the course, and made several other improvements to create a permanent memorial to honor Maggie.

We are back again in 2020 to bring you the Maggie Sophia Memorial Disc Golf Tournament on Maggie's Run! This was the largest tournament ever held in Baltimore, and we raised a ton of money! THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING!!! Last year the tournament donated close to $8,000 to the Johns Hopkins Pediatric Palliative Care Department. We sold out of all 144 player registrations and had a 16 person waitlist over a month before the tournament. We cannot wait for this year! It will be a tournament to remember for sure!! Be sure to register early if you want to play.

With that money, the department is able to do amazing things for families dealing with the tragedy of child loss. Among other things, the Palliative Care Department has purchased an infant cooling bed, which allows grieving families the ability to spend much more time with their baby. This bed, dedicated to Maggie, provides time for families to create precious memories with their babies after they have died. It's time families can never get back.

The memories created in that time helps families cope with the difficult short-term and long-term effects of leaving the hospital empty handed. The department was also able to purchase an entire Nikon camera system for the unit to use when the professional photographers at Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep are unavailable. Every nurse who is interested will be trained by a photographer to help the families create concrete, physical memories with their loved ones.

It warms our hearts to know that a simple disc golf tournament can have such a huge impact for countless families. Every single year they will continue to find new and creative ways to spend the money we raise to help ease the pain and make the worst day of a parent's life as healing as it can be. We want to personally thank every person who played and supported us in any way over the last few years. I hope you can make it out again!

This tournament is TROPHY ONLY for all divisions (including MPO & FPO). Everyone in all divisions receives a player's pack and is eligible to win all prizes. With the money we raise at this event, 100% of the proceeds will go to helping other families who experience the tragedy of infant and child loss. This tournament will benefit the Pediatric Palliative Care Department at Johns Hopkins Hospital again. Raising money for this cause is what this tournament is all about.
