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.
On June 15th, Brian Schaal, Scott McClain, Dennis Bradley, Dale Moore & Casey Johnson golfed from 4:50am to 10:45pm.
Other stats from their Golfathon include:
- Total Collective holes played: 580
- Total strokes played: 2019
- Total birdies: 75
- Total Pars: 407
- Total eagles: 3
“We persevered through two separate Thunder and Lightning storm delays that took away approximately 5 hours of golfing time, but we managed to still play for 13 hours of golf!” says Scott McClain, Head Golf Professional. “Copper Point Golf Club’s PGA of BC professionals remain committed to raising funds and awareness for the ALS Society of BC through the PGA of BC Golfathon for ALS.”
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.

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.
