“On behalf of the Association, I am extremely proud of the PGA of BC’s involvement with the Golfathon for ALS, benefiting the ALS Society of BC patient services,” says Donald Miyazaki, Executive Director of the PGA of BC. “Throughout our twelve years of participation, the efforts of countless Golf Professionals and Volunteers have helped raise over $1.4 million. The program has assisted tens of thousands of individuals throughout British Columbia affected by this deadly disease. I am confident that with the continued support of our members, 2018 will be yet another successful PGA of BC Golfathon for ALS.”

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.
