John Hadl to chair Audio-Reader Golf Classic

Wed, 04/03/2013

LAWRENCE — Renowned University of Kansas and professional football player John Hadl will show his support for Audio-Reader by chairing the fourth annual Audio-Reader Golf Classic for the second year. The tournament will take place May 20 at Alvamar Country Club.

“Audio-Reader is an important service that brings information and companionship to the blind and visually impaired in our community and around the state. I’ve really enjoyed being a part of the tournament,” Hadl said.

A halfback for both offense and defense at KU his freshman and sophomore years and then quarterback his junior and senior years, Hadl was selected as the university’s Player of the Century and inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 1994. He holds two KU records: Longest interception return, a 98-yard run against TCU; and longest punt, 94 yards vs. Oklahoma. The Jayhawks were ranked in the top 20 during Hadl’s last two years and his No. 21 jersey is one of only three KU has retired. Presently, Hadl serves as associate athletics director for KU. “Thanks to the help of John Hadl and many supporters, the Audio-Reader’s golf tournament has become an impressive event that we are really proud of,” said Janet Campbell, executive director.  
    
Deadline for teams and players to register is May 3. Businesses and individuals interested in sponsoring or playing in the tournament should contact Brenda Berg Dyck at 785-864-4634 or by email. For more information about Audio-Reader, visit online or call 785-864-4600.  

Offered as a public service by KU, Audio-Reader is a reading and information service for blind and print-disabled individuals throughout Kansas and western Missouri. The Kansas Audio-Reader Network exists to provide print-disabled citizens with access to the printed word and other information via closed-circuit radio and telephone reader broadcasts, internet, special request and audio-description of live theater.  Services are provided free of charge to enable print-disabled persons the opportunity to live their lives with the greatest possible personal independence.

Boy with autism benefits from KU student’s undergraduate research Two-year-old Mark’s first haircut in a salon was pretty traumatic. He screamed. He cried. His dad had to restrain him – Mark has autism and a haircut wasn’t part of his routine. But there’s a happy ending. The experience led KU senior Kristin Miller to seek an Undergraduate Research Award (see http://bit.ly/1xod9VT) to develop ways for children with developmental disabilities like Mark to learn how to accept routine health care treatment, such as going to the dentist — or even getting a buzz cut. Watch the video to see why it has been especially rewarding for Miller to help children like Mark.
