gap intelligence is a values-led company. We are passionate about each other, about our clients, and about our community. Over the last 3 years we have built a close relationship with the Emilio Nares Foundation (ENF), a local non-profit here in San Diego that navigates families through their child’s journey with cancer. After meeting Richard and Diane, who founded ENF in 2003 to help provide critical logistical support to families with a child fighting cancer, we were inspired to do more, to raise more money, to make a lasting impact in our local community. And in true gap intelligence fashion, what better way to do it than to have some fun along the way.

On May 1, 2015 we will be hosting our third annual Drives for Rides golf tournament to benefit ENF at Riverwalk Golf Course. Our goal is to raise $40,000, which goes directly to helping families and their children fighting cancer.

We believe we can do it with your help!

There are three elements that will get us to our goal and make this an impactful event: sponsorships, donations, and golfers.

About the Emilio Nares Foundation

Richard and Diane Nares lost their only son, Emilio Nares, to cancer when he was 5-years-old.  Turning tragedy into hope, the Nares family created the Emilio Nares foundation (ENF) in 2003. ENF provides a variety of programs and services for low-income, underprivileged families whose child has cancer. ENF’s flagship program, Ride With Emilio, is a transportation service in southern California. At this time no other transportation exists that is dedicated to the unique socio-economic needs of low-income families whose children must access cancer treatment on time, but cannot due specifically to transportation barriers. The Ride With Emilio program has virtually eliminated missed appointments due to transportation challenges among the patients served. Ride with Emilio has been recognized as a model program by the U.S. Surgeon General and President Obama. We are a 501C3 tax-exempt organization. All donations to the Emilio Nares Foundation are tax deductible. Learn more about ENF:
