Golfing to support those with ALS
During the month of June, golf professionals will golf from sunrise to sunset to support those living with ALS. On June 17, Brian Schaal, Casey Johnson, Tyler Hawthorne & Scott McClain from Copper Point Golf Club at the Ridg will golf as many holes as possible to raise awareness and funds for the ALS Society of BC. Copper Point Golf Club at the Ridge and Fairwinds Golf Course is one of 37 golf courses located across B.C participating in the PGA of B.C. Golfathon for ALS. Other courses participating from this region with dates still to be confirmed include Eagle Ranch Resort and Windermere Valley Golf Course.
Donald Miyazaki, Executive Director of the PGA of BC; “On behalf of the Association, I am extremely excited for the PGA of BC’s ninth year of participation with Golfathon for ALS, benefiting the ALS Society of BC patient services. In our eight years of involvement, the efforts of our members have generated over $869,000. We have also assisted the over 2,800 individuals in British Columbia whom are fighting this deadly disease.”
