2018 Talking Rock 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 27th, 2018; Nathan Grieve and Dave Munn golfed in support of those living with ALS. They golfed from 4:15AM – 9:30PM.
They each golfed 183 holes which included 75 Birdies.
“We were very happy to do our part in the PGA of BC Golfathon for ALS this year. We woke up the next morning with some very sore muscles, but we were reminded how fortunate we are to still have full mobility. ALS is a terrible disease that steals the freedom to move, and we hope a cure can be found in the near future.” – Nathan Grieve, Assistant Golf 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
