The Vancouver Golf Club

Hello!

Thank you very much for your generous contribution to the ALS Golfathon at the Vancouver Golf Club!

The ALS Society of BC is dedicated to providing direct support to ALS patients, along with their families and caregivers, to ensure the best quality of life possible while dealing with ALS. Through assisting research we are committed to find cause of, and cure for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS).

Vancouver Golf Club PGA of BC Professional Mike Heenan along with PGA of BC Business Development Manager Grant Gray and VGC Member Bob McCusker played 81 holes of golf on Monday June 12 at the VGC!

Members from the club as well as friends and the Club’s professional staff joined in to play at various times in the day and lend their support while engaging in some friendly competition and hard fought matches!

The day kicked off at 6:30AM with Mike Heenan leading the charge in round one firing 7 birdies enroute to a 66 that only took him 90 minutes to play! Proving great golf can be played quickly!

The VGC team played with high spirits until 9:30PM remembering club member and former PGA of BC Professional Don McCusker who lost his battle with ALS in 2016. Don played 72 holes with Mike Heenan in the 2012 Golfathon shortly after being diagnosed.

Funds are still being tallied and The Vancouver Golf Club team hopes to raise close to $20,000 this year well exceeding our goal of $15,000. We are extremely grateful with the level of contribution from family, friends, colleagues, and club members!

Thank you again for your support!
