During the month of June, golf professionals will golf from sunrise to sunset to support people living with ALS.
On June 18, Jim Pringle and Bill McDonough from Sunshine Coast Golf and Country Club (SCG&CC) will play as many holes as possible to raise awareness and funds for the ALS Society of B.C.
The SCG&CC is one of 37 golf courses located across B.C participating in the PGA of B.C. Golfathon for ALS.
ALS, also referred to as Lou Gehrig’s disease, is a fatal neurodegenerative disorder that affects a 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.
Proceeds from the Golfathon for ALS provide important support services to ALS patients and research to find a cure.
