The Body Balance Foundation (BBF) is a non-profit organization founded at a time of great adversity for Houston, and is dedicated to promoting the communal spirit and the Texan ideals through charity, education and service.
Dr. Shawn Taher is a Chiropractor and owner of Body Balance Chiropractic. He’s on a mission to not only help his patients feel better, but also children in the hospital during Christmas time.
For the past decade, Dr. Taher and his family have been delivering toys to Texas Children’s Hospital on Christmas Eve, with the goal of lifting the spirit of any child who has to spend time in the hospital for the holiday season.
In 2017, during the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, the Taher family were displaced from their home and faced struggles of their own. In these times of hardship, Dr. Shawn Taher and his wife, Heather, recognize that their cause is more important then than ever, but struggled to meet the needs of many on their own.
Thus came the first Golf FORE Kids tournament – hosted in collaboration with the Roger Clemens Foundation. Having witnessed the incredible outpour of support from the Houston community, Dr. Taher and his family decided to make the event its first annual, and the rest is history.
