97.1 The Sports Animal Interviews

Matt Henderson

Coach Frank Broyles

Since its inception in October 2001, the Henderson Charity Golf Tournament has become a staple in the Henderson firm. Beginning as a relief effort for the 9/11 terrorist attacks, the tournament has grown into a very personal, beneficial event for all involved. It gives the community an opportunity to give back while enjoying the camaraderie of close friends and associates on the golf course.

97.1 The Sports AnimalHenderson Charity Golf has had the opportunity to help many different charities over the years, including Helen Keller International, The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, and The American Red Cross. Through a very special friendship with Coach Frank Broyles, the 2006 Charity Golf tournament, the Forget Me Not Golf Classic, was organized to help benefit the Barbara Broyles' Foundation and the Alzheimer's Association. Coach Broyles and Coach Barry Switzer joined the efforts as co-chairmen of this tournament that would raise $50,000 in its inaugural year. Henderson Financial Group has committed to endorse the Alzheimer's Association and the Barbara Broyles' foundation with each future Henderson Charity Golf Tournament.

The Barbara Broyles' foundation was established by University of Arkansas former head coach and current Athletic Director Frank Broyles in honor of his late wife Barbara Broyles. With her passing, Coach Broyles developed "Coach Broyles' Playbook for Alzheimer's Caregivers"; a manual for caring for a loved one with Alzheimer's disease. The book gives easy-to-follow, simple instructions on how to deal with someone who has Alzheimer's, dementia or similar problems. Proceeds from the Forget Me Not Golf Classic will help promote and distribute Coach's Playbook in Arkansas and Oklahoma.

97.1 The Sports AnimalAlzheimer's is a disease that affects over 4.5 million Americans. Alzheimer's (AHLZ-high-merz) disease is a progressive brain disorder that gradually destroys a person's memory and ability to learn, reason, make judgments, communicate and carry out daily activities. As Alzheimer's progresses, individuals may also experience changes in personality and behavior, such as anxiety, suspiciousness or agitation, as well as delusions or hallucinations.

Although there is currently no cure for Alzheimer's, new treatments are on the horizon as a result of accelerating insight into the biology of the disease. Research has also shown that effective care and support can improve quality of life for individuals and their caregivers over the course of the disease from diagnosis to the end of life.
