FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
During the month of June, PGA of BC golf professionals located at courses throughout BC will golf from sunrise to sunset to support those living with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS).
On June 14th, 2018; Andy Hajer and Jayme Young at Arbutus Ridge Golf Course golfed in support of those living with ALS. They golfed from 7AM – 7PM under iffy skies.
They each golfed 100 holes which included 14 Birdies.
“Jayme Young and myself are honoured to be able to participate in the Golf-A-Thon in support of fighting ALS. We both have had people in our lives affected by ALS and we were happy to do our part for those living with this horrible disease. We are very thankful for the support we received from our membership and the Arbutus Ridge community. We look forward to participating again in 2019. We played golf from 7:00am till 7:00pm and played a combined 200 holes.” –Andy
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.
