ALS can hit anyone, at any time, regardless of age, gender or ethnic origin. The average life expectancy after diagnosis is two to five years. Support equipment costs an average of $140,000 per patient; nursing and/or home care costs are up to 10 times that amount.
During the month of June, PGA of BC golf professionals will golf from sunrise to sunset, in support of people living with ALS in BC. ALS does not stop and neither can we. The need for your support is more vital and urgent than ever. We hope you will help if you are able.
It is important this year to ensure we are practising physical distancing due to COVID-19, starting with the creation of the TV ad to promote this important fundraiser for ALS. We are very thankful that the BC Golf community has taken action to ensure safety for all during this time, and that the public can get out and enjoy a game of golf in a safe environment.
