Local golf pros helping support ALS Society of BC
During the month of June, golf professionals will golf from sunrise to sunset to support those living with ALS. To raise awareness and funds for the ALS Society of BC, they will golf as many holes as possible.
Golf by nature has built in physical distancing. Additional safety procedures have been implemented such as no physical contact between golfers, no contact surfaces and single carts. The PGA of BC remains committed to supporting people living with ALS. Because ALS does not give up and neither will we.
Invermere’s Copper Point Golf Club is one of over 30 golf courses located across B.C. participating in the 15th Annual PGA of BC Golfathon for ALS.
On June 16, Scott McClain, Brian Schaal, Dennis Bradley and Dale Moore will hit the links to help raise funds.
“On behalf of the Association, I am extremely proud of the PGA of BC’s involvement with the Golfathon for ALS, benefiting the ALS Society of BC patient services,” says Donald Miyazaki, Executive Director of the PGA of BC. “Throughout our years of participation, the efforts of countless Golf Professionals and Volunteers have helped raise over $1.9 million. The program has assisted tens of thousands of individuals throughout British Columbia affected by this deadly disease. I am confident that with the continued support of our members, 2020 will be yet another successful PGA of BC Golfathon for ALS.”
“Golf is a sport I’m passionate about and ALS is a cause close to my heart,” says Jay Janower, sports anchor/reporter, Global News BC. “My friend’s mom battled ALS so raising funds for patient services is near to my heart. It’s the reason I welcome the opportunity to become a part of the hugely successful PGA of BC Golfathon for ALS as its Ambassador.”
Proceeds from the Golfathon for ALS provide crucial support services to ALS patients and their families, friends, and caregivers.
