This is the 10th year of the PGA of BC Golfathon for ALS. During the month of June – ALS Awareness month, PGA of BC golf professionals sign up to golf from sunrise to sunset lending their muscles to those who have lost the use of their muscles to ALS.
The concept was born in the Comox Valley at Glacier Greens Golf Course. Scott Fraser was the head professional at the time and pledged to golf a full day of golf in honour of friend Bruce Taylor who had recently been diagnosed with ALS. Bruce relayed to Scott the need to raise awareness about ALS and to raise funds for other patients like himself who are supported by the ALS Society of BC.
