Welcome! Ben's Buddies is a nonprofit, all-volunteer group who raise money for the Benjamin Walker Hanson Neonatology Fund, part of the University of Minnesota Foundation.  Our mission is to empower and support families and friends who have suffered the loss of a child while raising funds for newborn research & education.

Due to the pandemic and to ensure the safety of our community and health care workers we hope to support, the 2020 golf tournament has been cancelled.  While we are very disappointed about this we believe it is the best course of action.  

Within the next few weeks we expect to share more information about how Ben's Buddies is supporting neonatology as well as virtual activities to connect with our community through the rest of the pandemic.  We look forward to the day when we can connect again in person.

Given that both of our annual fund raisers have been cancelled due to the pandemic please consider making a one-time donation  for 2020 to continue supporting research and education in newborn medicine at the University of Minnesota.  You can donate here on our web page or support our Facebook fundraiser.  You may also send your check to Ben's Buddies, 3030 Little Bay Road, Roseville, MN 55113.  If you prefer, donate directly to Ben's fund at the University of Minnesota 
All donations are tax deductible.
