2018 Mount Brenton Golf Course
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 29th, 2018; Jan Best golfed in support of those living with ALS. He golfed from 4:30AM – 2:00PM.
He golfed 144 holes which included 1 Eagle and 27 Birdies.
“We are proud to receive over $3000 dollars in donations this year. It rained the entire day which helped with the speed of play since less people were on the golf course. The scores were much lower than recent years with a low round of 63. 144 holes in total. Thank you to Pat O’Brien and Gord Koster and everyone else who volunteered to help.” – Jan Best, Head Professional
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
