Golfers’ efforts for the ALS Society were deeply appreciated 2014-07-22Wendy Toyer Executive Director of the ALS Society of BC dropped by the Revelstoke Golf Club to thank Taylor Pearcey (left) and Greg Austin (right) for their efforts in the PGA of BC Golfathon for ALS. The pair golfed from 4:15 am – 10:15 pm on June 30 completing 200 holes each! When asked what was the highlight from the day, Taylor said having people come by during the day to thank them and to make a donation. As well, pro shop staffer Daniel Herrick joined the pair for 72 holes. At the end of the day, over $1,515 was raised in support of patient services provided by the ALS Society of BC www.alsbc.ca. 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 PGA of BC Golfathon for ALS provide important support services to ALS patients and research to find a cure.
