About Tee Up Fore the Cure
Diabetes research is a cause close to the heart of the Leef family and ITU AbsorbTech. George L. Leef, ITU AbsorbTech’s second-generation president, was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes in 1929, shortly after the discovery of insulin. With the help of exercise and diet management, George lived a full life but still needed the aid of hundreds of thousands of blood checks and shots. He suffered from diabetic neuropathy for many years before passing away in 2007.
During his lifetime he generously gave to diabetes research. He was a kind and devoted family man who gave so much to all those who had the privilege of knowing him.
In honor of George’s love of the game, the first Tee Up Fore the Cure was played in 2006. It was a modest start on a cold fall day where 72 players helped raise $7,000 for Type 1 Diabetes research.
In 2016, Tee Up Fore the Cure partnered with Milwaukee Brewers pitching great, Ken Sanders, to add many new dimensions to Tee Up, including celebrity golfers. Robin Yount was Tee Up’s first featured celebrity for the 10th-anniversary celebration. The event has grown to 145 players in 2016 and has raised $190,000 for research to date.
ITU AbsorbTech achieves the Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District (MMSD) honor roll seven years in a row.
ITU AbsorbTech has been named a winner of the Wisconsin Corporate Safety Award from the Wisconsin Safety Council (WSC) and the Department of Workforce Development (DWD).
