Two local golf pros will tee off from sunrise to sunset at Chilliwack’s Cheam Mountain Golf Course on June 30, supporting the 15th annual PGA of B.C. Golfathon for ALS.
Kevin Stinson and Cody Stewart are participating in one of 30 events across the province, helping to raise money for the ALS Society of B.C.
It’s no easy task. Stinson and Stewart will golf as many holes as possible, and over the course of 12 hours that’ll likely work out to more than 100 each.
This year’s event will include extra safety procedures because of COVID-19, including no physical contact between golfers, no contact surfaces and single carts.
“Throughout our years of participation, the efforts of countless golf professionals and volunteers have helped raise over $1.9 million,” said Donald Miyazaki, executive director of the PGA of B.C. “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 B.C. Golfathon for ALS.”
Proceeds from the Golfathon for ALS provide crucial support services to ALS patients and their families, friends, and caregivers.
