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.
One June 21st, Greg Pool, Theo Tanski, Gord Butt, Derek Whipple, Quinn Vilneff, Keaton Cameron, Clay O’Dell, Dan Naismith & Lindsay Manion golfed a total of 510 holes, with a total of 111 Birdies.
“The group played sporadically from 6:00am to 8:30pm. A great day for team-building and creating awareness for an excellent cause!” Said PGA head professional Greg Pool
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.

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.
