Throughout the province, golf professionals have been participating in the 15th 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.
On July 2nd, Cindy Soukoroff, Mike Pearson, and Doug Schneider golfed from 5:00am to 8:00pm. For a combined total of 144 holes, Soukoroff golfed 72 holes; Pearson, 18; and Schneider, 54.
“I would like to thank all the donors, especially a donor who made a $1,000 donation,” says Cindy Soukoroff, Head Golf Professional, St. Eugene Golf Resort & Casino. According to Soukoroff, their Golfathon is held in honour of her friend’s father, as well as a member of the golf club, who are both living with ALS.
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.
