On June 20, 2017, Michael Midyette, Scott Lawlor, and Dale Moore golfed 153 holes each in support of those living with ALS. The three golfers played from 6:00am to 10:30pm. Highlights of the day included perfect weather for golf, and a 340 yard par 4 shot made by Scott.
Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), also referred to as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, is a fatal neurodegenerative disorder that affects the 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. There is no known cause or cure yet, but there is hope through the ALS Society of BC.
Proceeds from the Golfathon for ALS provide crucial support services to ALS patients and their families, friends, and caregivers.
