Richmond Country Club will play host on Monday to the 16th Annual PGA of BC Golfathon for ALS.
Robbie Wood, Graham Ogden, Dan Yoon and Olivia Reid will golf from sunrise to sunset to support the ALS Society of BC by raising awareness and funds.
It’s all part of a province-wide effort by golfers during the month of June, as the event hits a different course every day.
"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,” said 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 $2.3 million.
“The program has assisted tens of thousands of individuals throughout British Columbia affected by this deadly disease.”
Proceeds from the Golfathon for ALS provide crucial support services to ALS patients and their families, friends, and caregivers.
