Atlantic/Word recording group NEEDTOBREATHE is bringing together celebrity athletes and musicians for their annual charity golf tournament. The NEEDTOBREATHE Classic, now in its fourth year, raises money to benefit the Palmetto Medical Initiative (PMI), a Charleston, South Carolina-based non-profit organization which seeks to bring quality health care to developing countries around the world. This year's participants include NBA legend Rick Barry, PGA player Russell Henley, NFL receiver Adam Humphries, multiplatinum rock band Switchfoot, chart-topping singer Mat Kearney, actor Kevin Sorbo ("God's Not Dead") and musicians Drew Holcomb and John Mark McMillan.

"This tournament is literally our favorite couple days of the year! The lineup of celebrities this year is the best we've ever had, so we can't wait to see what kind of money will be raised for this great cause," explains lead singer Bear Rinehart.

The GRAMMY-nominated band raised over $250,000 for PMI in 2015 alone, largely from last year's NEEDTOBREATHE Classic. With the impassioned support of their incredible fans, the band has also funded the entirety of the organization's first clinic in Tola, Nicaragua.

NEEDTOBREATHE is currently in the studio working on the follow-up to 2014's Rivers In The Wasteland, which debuted at No. 1 on Billboard's "Top Rock Albums" and "Top Alternative Albums" charts while also entering the overall SoundScan/Billboard 200 at No. 3 and earned the band their first ever GRAMMY® Award nomination. The as-yet-untitled album is expected to be released later in 2016 with North American touring plans to be unveiled shortly.
