This includes mobility equipment, lift equipment, beds & accessories, communication devices, and bathroom aids, if needed. All equipment loaned is available at no charge to registered ALS patient members.

  • “On behalf of the Association, I am extremely excited for the PGA of BC’s ninth year of participation with Golfathon for ALS, benefiting the ALS Society of BC patient services. In our eight years of involvement, the efforts of our members have generated over $869,000 and assisted the over 2,800 individuals in British Columbia whom are fighting this deadly disease. I am confident that with the continued support of our members, 2014 will be the year where the program will eclipse the $1 million mark.”

  • 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.
