Timmy Ellison was tragically killed in a car accident in 1993 at the tender age of 23 years old. Family and friends immediately started planning a golf tournament to have people come together and share their memories and to give back to the community in his name. This went on for 10 years. There were scholarship given in Timmy's name to Rosary High School were he had attended, along with granting wishes, with Make A Wish, sending children who were severely burned to camp to enjoy being a child along with donating money to The Head Injury Foundation.
In 2003, Timmy's mom, Diane Wamhoff, was traveling in Honduras where she was approached by a nun, sister Theresita who guided her to a mountain where children would not survive if someone did not intervene. At that time, Timmy's Mountain was formed. We have fed and educated children since.
