Donald Miyazaki, Executive Director of the PGA of BC; “On behalf of the Association, I am extremely excited for the PGA of BC’s decade of participation with Golfathon for ALS, benefiting the ALS Society of BC patient services. In our eleven years of involvement, the efforts of our members have generated over $1.3 million. We have also assisted the tens of thousands of individuals in British Columbia affected by this deadly disease. I am confident that with the continued support of our members, 2017 will be the most successful PGA of B.C. Golfathon for ALS to date.”

“How many sports can we play all our life, and of those, how many can we enjoy alongside friends and family? For myself and the professionals of the PGA of BC – Golf tops that list! It’s why I’m encouraging you and your foursome to lend your support, as BC’s dedicated professionals tee it up to do their part in helping find a cure. As an avid golfer, I couldn’t get to the tee box quick enough to become a part of the hugely successful PGA of BC Golfathon for ALS as its Ambassador. My friend’s mom is battling ALS so raising funds for patient services is near to my heart. Let’s unite and get behind the PGA of BC and it’s dedicated professionals. Thank you for your support….now let’s hit the links!“ –

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.

Help support your local golf professionals to raise awareness and funds for the ALS Society of BC.
