About NB3F

Notah Begay III is a true Native American success story. In his youth, he would hop the fence to play on an Albuquerque area municipal golf course and work odd jobs in exchange for golf and driving range privileges. His passion for golf led him to become an All American at Stanford University, a 4-time winner on the PGA Tour, and a respected golf broadcaster for NBC Sports and The Golf Channel.
But what makes Notah’s success story truly remarkable is his devotion to the health and fi tness of Native communities, and in particular, the health of Native youth. In 2005, he started the Notah Begay III Foundation to assist Native-led organizations in reversing Native American childhood obesity and type 2 diabetes by investing in evidence-based, community-driven and culturally relevant programs. With support from organizations like Nike, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, and the Mdewakanton Sioux tribal community, NB3F has raised millions of dollars to make a real difference in improving the well-being of Native children.
Help Raving in any or all of its NB3F fundraisers throughout the year – The Native Strong Comedy Slam, NB3FIT Day, the Tribal Spirit of Giving Awards, Raving Insider Parties and the President’s Dinners. Support the health of Native American youth and get involved with NB3F today.
If you can't attend the Native Strong Comedy Slam this year but you would still like to support the cause, donate directly to NB3F here.
