Get on the Green was an Indiana based not-for-profit 501(c)3 corporation that used the game of golf to raise awareness and fundraising for worthwhile local, regional, and national charities. During the summer of 2013, the Get On The Green Corporation conducted a highly unique From Tee to Shining Tee fund raising and awareness event in which Indianapolis-native Luke Bielawski “teed off” from the shores of the Pacific Ocean, striking a golf ball the entirety of the United States, completing the journey on the shores of the Atlantic.
The funds raised from the From Tee to Shining Tee event went towards helping underprivileged and economically challenged kids pursue their dreams by attending Providence Cristo Rey, a college preparatory high school for students from families with limited financial means.

Two cousins, one year apart in age, teamed up for the summer to complete the “From Tee to Shining Tee” event.
Both attended Indiana University and spent a summer as roommates. Nick is a frequent competitor in Strong Man competitions and Luke now practices corporate law in Indianapolis, Indiana.
