Golfers at the MnFORE fundraiser pause at Bearpath Golf Course during the national anthem.

A golf tournament fundraiser raised $50,000 for health initiatives for firefighters, said a representative of the Minnesota Firefighter Initiative (MnFIRE).

Around 145 golfers played at Bearpath Golf and Country Club in Eden Prairie on May 20 to raise money for programs relating to cancer, cardiac issues and emotional trauma, which firefighters are at greater risk for than the general public, said Brian Bellmont of MnFIRE.

The inaugural MnFORE fundraiser included an 18-hole game, silent auction and raffle.
