2019 Fairview Mountain Golf Club
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
During the month of June, golf professionals will golf from sunrise to sunset to support those living with ALS. To raise awareness and funds for the ALS Society of BC, they will golf as many holes as possible.
On June 12th, Mike Fredericks, Thierry Martine, Rob Tadey and Justin Brandt hosted their Golfathon from 4:30AM to 6:15PM. Throughout the day the foursome golfed 864 holes altogether, scoring a total of 3,140; with 315 birdies and three eagles. The highlight of the day was when Tadey scored a hole in one.
“Fairview Mountain is very proud of our four guys,” said Debbie Olafson, Member & Guest Services at Fairview Mountain Golf Club. “They participate, raise awareness, and support the ALS Society of BC every year.”
Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), also referred to as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, is a fatal neurodegenerative disorder that affects the person’s motor neurons that carry messages to the muscles resulting in weakness and wasting in arms, legs, mouth, throat and elsewhere; typically the person is immobilized within two to five years of the initial diagnosis. There is no known cause or cure yet, but there is hope through the ALS Society of BC.
Proceeds from the Golfathon for ALS provide crucial support services to ALS patients and their families, friends, and caregivers.
Help support your local golf professionals to raise awareness and funds for the ALS Society of BC.
