PGA OF B.C. GOLFATHON FOR ALS

  • Summer has come and gone, but my 2016 Golf-A-Thon for ALS is about to launch… Off the Dock!

    In past years I have golfed up The Golden Hinde, the tallest mountain on Vancouver Island. I have also golfed teeing off on every hole with a baseball bat in honour of  Yankee great Lou Gehrig, whose name is synonymous with the disease, donning a Gehrig jersey and Yankees hat, playing 184 holes in a day to match his single season RBI record. This year I am taking the ALS message to the sea, and the Gulf Islands!

  • 2015 was a record year of the PGA of BC Golfathon for ALS.  Over $163,00 was raised!  Thank you!!

  • In 2005, Bruce Taylor who was recently diagnosed with ALS, met for a cup of coffee with PGA Golf Pro, Scott Fraser at his course, Glacier Greens in Comox.  They were joined by Rotarian Jerry Feniak..  He explained to his friends about ALS and the support he receives from the ALS Society of B.C. 

    Bruce was concerned  that not many people were aware of the disease ALS, even though the golf community was exposed to ALS when Bruce Allen, caddy for many golf pros including Tom Watson passed away from ALS.

    Scott offered to golf from sunrise to sunset in honour of Bruce and his freind Terry Donaldson who also was living with ALS in the Comox Valley.
