“Jason and I had a great day supporting the Golfathon for ALS, we are always honored to be able to give back as much as we can.

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.
Help support your local golf professionals to raise awareness and funds for the ALS Society of BC. Please Donate. www.golfathonforals.com
