PGA British Columbia Golfathon for ALS Presented by Pacific Blue Cross

Message from Jay Janower

Golf is a sport I’m passionate about and ALS is a cause close to my heart. My friend’s mom battled ALS so raising funds for patient services is near to my heart.  It’s the reason I welcome the opportunity to become a part of the hugely successful PGA of BC Golfathon for ALS as its Ambassador.

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.
