2022 St. Eugene Golf Resort & Casino

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Throughout the province, golf professionals have been participating in the 16th Annual PGA of BC Golfathon for ALS presented by Pacific Blue Cross. Golfing from sunrise to sunset, they golf as many holes as possible to raise funds and awareness for people living with ALS.

St. Eugene Golf Resort & Casino

On June 30, Cindy Soukoroff & Mike Pearson started their day at 5 AM golfing a total of 15.5 hours finishing at 8:30PM, golfing a total of 144 holes collectively. The highlight of their day was having scheduled tee times for each round so that they can have supporters join them as they play. This year they were also joined by Charlie Bristow for 2 rounds as he was travelling through the area raising money for Autism Charities.

Comment from the golfers: We are grateful for the opportunity to support the ALS Society of BC through the Golfathon each year.  Our own awareness of ALS and how it has affected so many lives including past guests to St. Eugene is only one reason we will continue to support this great cause. 

Proceeds from the Golfathon for ALS provide crucial support services to ALS patients and their families, friends, and caregivers provided by the ALS Society of BC.

Help support your local golf professionals to raise awareness and funds for the ALS Society of BC.

About ALS

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.
